It’s an active week in Los Angeles for international theater of resistance. In addition to Redcat’s presentation of Mateluna, CAP UCLA is bringing in the THÉÂTRE DE LA VILLE production of Albert Camus’ L’ETAT DE SIÈGE for two nights.
Camus’ piece—an allegory about authoritarian corruption, with original mise en scène by Jean-Louis Barrault—was originally staged in 1948. This new production, directed by Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota, will complete its current U.S. tour at the Brooklyn Academy of Music next month.
THÉÂTRE DE LA VILLE—L’ETAT DE SIÈGE / THE STATE OF SIEGE, Thursday and Friday, October 26 and 27, at 8 pm.
ROYCE HALL, 10745 Dickson Court, UCLA, Los Angeles.
