In the autumn program of The Norwegian Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Rhinoceros:

"What if you woke up one day, and found that everyone around you had turned into rhinoceros? At Scene 2, we present Eugène Ionesco's absurd comedy Rhinoceros. Utterly ordinary people stop being ordinary and become like rhinoceros, who don't give a damn about humanism, don't give a damn about factchecking, don't give a damn about culture and don't give a damn about normal politeness. What do you do, when you realise that the world is about to be taken over by clumsy, vulgar, aggressive and territorial animals characterised by short-sightedness and small brains?"
