THE PLAGUE
American Premiere
Adapted by Neil Bartlett
From La Peste by Albert Camus
Directed by Charles McMahon

STREAMING ON DEMAND
Premieres October 7, 2021


Infection, quarantine, panic, and closed borders are invoked in this sharp adaptation of Camus' masterful novel La Peste, originally written following World War II to serve as a political warning to future generations about fascism. Bartlett's compelling drama is all the more startling for how contemporary and timeless the action plays out on the stage: "How would I react if the plague came for me?"

This production is now in rehearsals and will be filmed at St. Stephen's Theater in Center City Philadelphia, with strict adherence to all CDC, state, and local health and safety guidelines.
