Rhinoceros and Other Plays by Eugène Ionesco

"Rhinoceros and Other Plays" is a collection of three absurdist dramas that explore themes of conformity, culture, and mass movements. The titular play depicts a small French town where the inhabitants inexplicably transform into rhinoceroses, symbolizing the rise of fascism and the dangers of conformity. The other two plays, "The Leader" and "The Future is in Eggs," continue to explore these themes through a satirical and often surreal lens, challenging societal norms and the nature of reality itself.
