The Plague
Information for The Plague at Arcola, Inner London (Play). "April 29th; lunchtime. Found Mr Michel in the street outside the apartment. Walk unsteady. Eyes unnaturally bright." Dr Rieux is noticing things. A rat on the stairs, where it has no right to be. A sore throat becoming a fever. The first signs of panic. It all amounts to a troubling diagnosis... so what's the cure? The Plague is Albert Camus' electrifying story about living through a time of crisis and fighting back against despair. Written in the aftermath of the Nazis' march across Europe, it struck a powerful chord with millions struggling to understand the fascist 'plague' that had just overwhelmed them. Now, seventy years later, multi-award-winning director Neil Bartlett (Or You Could Kiss Me, National Theatre; Stella, LIFT) retells Camus' classic for our own dangerous times. His frank and gripping new stage adaptation puts chaos under the microscope, and plants the germ of hope in the power of our common humanity.
Approximate runtime 120minutes (including any interval).
