Written in 1943 by French playwright and author Albert Camus, this play centers around a man who returns home after 20 years spent living abroad and discovers that his sister and widowed mother are earning a living by taking in rich travelers and then murdering them. Since his mother and sister don’t recognize him, he decides to observe their activities by pretending to be a lodger himself. This is the first time Camus’s work will be performed at the New National Theatre, Tokyo. It will be directed by the up-and-coming Kae Inaba, who has gained acclaim for her recent works at Bungakuza Theatre Company.
