Drama / Adaptation

First published in 1947, THE PLAGUE was an immediate best-seller, striking a powerful chord with readers who were struggling to understand the fascist ‘plague’ that had just overwhelmed Europe. Seventy years later, author and director Neil Bartlett has adapted Camus’ classic for our own dangerous times. Using just five actors, his frank and gripping new stage version uses Camus’ original words to put chaos under the microscope and to find hope in the power of our common humanity.
