Background

Synopsis


To begin with, everyone agreed that this couldn't possibly happen.


Not to them.


But now, people are starting to talk about infection - even quarantine.


Who is responsible?


And what's the cure?


The Plague is Albert Camus' electrifying story about living through a time of crisis and fighting back against despair.


Originally written in the aftermath of the Nazis' march across Europe, the novel struck a powerful chord with millions struggling to understand the fascist 'plague' that had just overwhelmed them.


Now, as Europe slides again into chaos and uncertainty, this gripping stage adaptation retells Camus' classic for our own dangerous times.
