Imago's writer/director Jerry Mouawad entered the world of Beckett when he opened To Fly Again (2018), creating a Mad Max world infused with clown and dance theatre. With Julia's Place, Mouawad pays homage to Ionesco's Rhinoceros. Here's how it works...

His wife turned into a rhino. Her girlfriend turned into a rhino, too. We've seen this dehumanizing insanity before. But with Julia's Place, Imago Theatre riffs on Ionesco's freakish scenario -- of a populace devolving into horned beasts -- to deliver a freshly philosophical farce. One part existentialism, two parts slapstick, this zany social satire incorporates shadow puppetry and pure buffoonery as its two lead characters -- Porkchop (Josh Edward) and Ralph (Noel Olken) -- figure out a way to survive the stampeding apocalypse with a trio of fellow misfits or, at least, get a plate of spaghetti from the kooky cafe owner (Carol Triffle) before the world ends.

All audiences must show vaccination cards (hard copy or electronic) and photo ID upon entry and must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 with either Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccine. All audience members must wear proper covid masks when inside Imago Theatre.
