Albert Camus Comes to Town, well ...
Calling all Francophiles and philosophy / ethics majors in the DC area.
If you are a fan of Albert Camus or if you simply enjoy good theatre that will provoke thought, then you must get to the Artisphere in Arlington to see the WSC Avant Bard production of Les Justes [The Just Ones].
The play in a newly translated version adapted by Rahaleh Nassri is not only fresh to the ear but also current given our history of terrorists, etc.
Sublimely directed by Jay Hardee and equally acted by a well-balanced cast the flow of words will hit you like a professorial comp session--not that it is bad, it's simply that by the time you process something you are hit by other thoughts going through your mind. But in truth that is what is required of this play as we watch a plot unfold--how else would one plan an assassination?
I suggest that you see this play before the tickets sell out; it's truly a must see play for it touches on various compelling quotidian issues yet it is set in a different century of European Resistance.
