A man gets in an empty London tube carriage to nowhere. He waits and questions a seemingly automated voice for information. And then a woman enters. And then another one. And they keep on going. Not moving. Always questioning, manipulating, feeling one another. It is all about unearthing the information that will help them escape the inevitable

Rhinocéros

Rhinoceros
by Eugene Ionesco
in a new version by Zinnie Harris

“I suppose it goes to show that these days you never know what might run up your street.”

In a sleepy French provincial town, a rhinoceros rampages across the market square. Another crushes someone’s cat.

A woman sounds the alarm: it is the townspeople themselves who are transforming into these raging beasts. As more and more of the citizens embrace their future as rhinos, just one man – the drunkard Berenger – refuses to transform. But why does he feel so out of step with everyone else? And what will his refusal to conform cost him?

Eugène Ionesco’s classic 1959 play is an uproarious absurdist farce – and a chilling examination of conformism, nationalism, fascism and fundamentalism that has been compared with Orwell’s Animal Farm and Camus’s The Plague. It considers the countless ways in which humans are content to adapt themselves to new and horrifying circumstances, and give in to poisonous ideologies.

Alongside its piercing political insights, it is comic, thrillingly theatrical and deeply human, focusing on the unlikely hero of the everyman Berenger, and the possibility of resistance to what might seem inevitable.

This production is presented in a new version by leading Scottish playwright, Zinnie Harris, directed by the celebrated founder of Istanbul’s DOT Theatre, Murat Daltaban.

A co-production between Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and the Edinburgh International Festival in association with DOT Theatre, Istanbul

Christine Bovill’s Paris

Award-winning chanteuse Christine Bovill has built her reputation on the massively successful sell-out show, Piaf. In Christine Bovill’s Paris, she beckons you back to the golden age of French Song; a demi-monde of heroes and outcasts, cynics and bruised romantics. With drama, pathos and pizzazz, the show casts a sepia-tinged spotlight on the songs and stories of Jacques Brel, Edith Piaf, Barbara, Juliet Greco, Charles Aznavour and more, interspersed with wonderful anecdotes from the period. Come and be transported into a Parisian scented twilight world of song. ★★★★★ (Scotsman). ★★★★★ (Herald). www.christinebovill.com.
