Coming after its recent phenomenally well-received production of Ntozake Shange's _for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf_, and off the two IRNE nominations the company earned for its first season, Praxis Stage is thrilled to be bringing THE PLAGUE to Boston in what will mark its United States premiere after a highly successful and acclaimed run last spring at the Arcola Theatre, one of the leading Off-West-End theaters in London.
Albert Camus wrote LA PESTE in the wake of the Second World War as an allegorical response to the fascist plague that had just consumed Europe and left millions dead. This 2017 theatrical adaptation by Neil Bartlett brings the play into our own dangerous times. This stripped-down stage version uses Camus’ original words to explore how we can — and must-- find hope within our common humanity even in a world consumed by chaos, madness, and despair.
Praxis will be presenting this timely, haunting, and ultimately uplifting piece in two incarnations. Over two weekends in a limited seat intimate staging at Dorchester Art Project, where they staged last year's JESUS HOPPED THE 'A' TRAIN, just nominated for a Best Acting Ensemble, Small Stage IRNE Award, and after those weekends it will enjoy a Wednesday through Sunday, six-show-week-run at Boston Playwright's Theatre, starting May 23rd.
