An ingenious tale of two Hollywood giants-- Orson Welles and Laurence Olivier, set in 1960 in a London West End theatre. Legendary critic Kenneth Tynan has made a startling proposal: Welles should direct Olivier and the young Joan Plowright in
Rhinoceros, Ionesco's absurdist masterpiece. But it is the rehearsal process that brims with absurdity as titanic personalities, including Vivien Leigh, wrestle the muse in this witty and incisive depiction of the drama of theatre.
Featuring Jen Danby, Dana Jesberger, Andy McCutcheon, Adam Newborn, Stephen Peabody, and Eric Rice.
