Staging Stranger

The popular Albert Camus novel L'Etranger tells the story of Mersault, who kills an Algerian man and is put on trial. It's been adapted for film, and has influenced music and pop culture since its publication in 1942.

Toronto’s Praxis Theatre Company has transferred L'Etranger to the stage, where it's become Stranger, a collectively-adapted work exploring the themes of Camus' work with some contemporary touches.

Thursday morning on Take 5, I'll be speaking with Stranger's director and Praxis' co-Artistic Director, Simon Rice, just after 9amET.
