A dark comedy translated into Maltese: Teatru Malta’s next play will knock your socks off!
An unmissable event!

Jillian Mallia

Teatru Malta are back at it again! As part of their Progett Klassici – a yearly initiative aimed at producing modern classics in Maltese – the National Theatre company will be presenting another top notch piece this September.

One of the legendary Eugene Ionesco’s masterpieces will be showcased at the Esplora Planetarium hall in Kalkara. Rinoceronti, translated by Clare Azzopardi and Albert Gatt, will be directed by Michael Fenech and is a translation of one of the French-Romanian playwright’s acclaimed plays, originally titled Rhinocéros (Rhinoceros).

The incredible play

This absurdist piece of theatre deals with conformism, mass hysteria and alienation, and forms part of the second edition of the Progett Klassici series titled Tliet Xoghlijiet ta’ Eugene Ionesco. It will also be published alongside Maltese translations of the playwright’s La Cantatrice Chauve (The Bald Soprano) and La Lecon (The Lesson).

Throughout this dark comedy, it’s very apparent that something absurd is going on, in a town where nothing absurd ever does. Something strange is about to happen in a town where people lead cereal-box-family sort of lives. But what happens when those ordinary people you thought you knew so well begin to change? Do you change, too?

The production deets

The play stars Daniel Azzopardi as Berenger, the hero who is frightened, defiant, desperate, frustrated and totally unhinged by this looming epidemic that is certainly relatable to audiences. Other local favourites taking part include Andre Mangion, Antonella Axisa, Kim Dalli, Naomi Knight, Magda von Kuilenberg, Joe Depasquale, Anthony Ellul, Simon Curmi, Aaron Fenech and Daniela Carabott Pawley. Rinoceronti will run from 12th to 15th September and is expected to be one heck of a show!
