By Albert Camus, adapted for the stage by Louise Wigglesworth
A haunting tale of human resilience in the face of unrelieved horror, Camus' story about a mysterious plague ravaging the people of a small city in the 1940's, is a classic of twentieth-century literature which remains strikingly current. Set in Algeria, The Plague is a powerful study of human life and its meaning in the face of irrational and uncontrollable events. Each citizen responds in his own way to the lethal condition: some resign themselves to fate, some seek blame, and a few, like Dr. Bernard Rieux, abandon personal comfort to dedicate themselves to the common good. It's a story of bravery and determination against the precariousness of human existence that leaves us with hope in the innate goodness of humanity.
