L’Etat de siège (State of Siege) Théâtre de la Ville at the U of M Power Center, Ann Arbor

02 Oct 2017 12:20 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

After thrilling stage productions of Ionesco’s Rhinocéros in 2012 and Pirandello’s Six Characters in Search of an Author in 2014, Théâtre de la Ville returns with L’Etat de siège (State of Siege), a dizzying and alternative fact-filled allegory by Albert Camus about defiance in the face of authoritarianism.

In this nightmarish future, a city is reduced to silence and submission to authority. The Plague brings order, administration, lists, records, statistics, and persecution — until a young man, Diego, organizes a revolt. Written in 1948 in the aftermath of World War II, State of Siege reflects the creation of a corrupt, totalitarian regime, weaving together paranoia, endurance, and the necessity of resistance.

Performances Oct 13 and 14, Power Center, Ann Arbor
