A violent cycle of corruption and betrayal is set in motion when the popular King Duncan of Scotland is murdered by Macbeth, his trusted friend. Macbeth -- with his manipulative wife by his side -- achieves the power he believes he deserves, but the price is tragically high. Shakespeare's masterpiece provides a glimpse into the human heart, with the "black and deep desires" that are often found in even the best of men and women. Organic Theater Company's fresh take on this ageless tale sees this power couple's journey in its grotesque complexity. Learn More

I'm not a huge fan of absurd theater. That said, I thought this was really well done. I have seen Rhinoceros before and read the script, and I got much more from this performance. It was also very funny, which I've never really gotten before. The company that puts this on is great, which is why I went to see the show. If you like absurd theater, you will love this show.
By Eugene Ionesco
Directed by Alex Gelman
“I am alone and they are all together.”
Rhinoceroses are loose in the streets. Berenger does not care. While the citizenry fails to make heads (horns) or tail out of an increasingly chaotic situation, our hero begins to realize that everybody around him is gradually changing into pachyderms. Considered by many to be Ionesco’s finest play, Rhinoceros tracks one man’s lonely efforts to hang onto his humanity, while everyone around him abandons theirs.
