Stranger ()

Produced by

Praxis Theatre

Playwrights: Simon Rice and Shaun McComb
Director: Simon Rice

An original adaptation by Praxis Theatre based on Albert Camus’ L’√Čtranger


The Great Hall – Longboat Hall


January 23rd, 2009 – February 8th, 2009


n his 1942 novel L’Etranger, Albert Camus asks a simple question:¬† “Is a man’s inability to cry at his mother’s funeral sufficient evidence to condemn him?¬† Stranger explores this and other existential dilemmas in a fast-paced ensemble drama that follows Mersault’s incomprehensible murder of a man and his subsequent trial.

Ultimately, our story is about an unconventional hero who, without heroic pretensions, agrees to die for the truth. (
