Les Justes (The Just Ones)

by Albert Camus
Translated and Adapated by Rahaleh Nassri
Directed by Jay Hardee

Following Henry (I)V, we return to the work of another favorite author, Albert Camus (some of you may remember our recent production of his Caligula), as we present a new adaptation of his eerily relevant exploration of politically-motivated violence, Les Justes. Rahaleh Nassri, who has acted in WSC productions including Caligula and Titus Andronicus, will provide a new adaptation.   Jay Hardee, a WSC Company Member who has achieved directorial success with The Gnadiges Fraulein, Richard III, and Every Young Woman’s Desire, will direct our premiere of that adaptation.

REVIEWS

“****With direction by Jay Hardee – the show takes audiences on a dramatic journey – filled with high stakes and dire moments – as the story of a small group of revolutionaries attempt and plot to carry out an assassination in the name of terror and justice, believing that only one can help bring forth the other…The show is intense and the cast is filled with powerful performances… when there are scenes and moments that are bursting with excitement, high energy, extreme tension, and dire circumstances, Les Justes is thrilling and compelling….Les Justes is a great series of emotional moments that holds the attention of the audience, and is filled with raw emotion.”
