The remarkable troupe of Paris' Théâtre de la Ville returns to Berkeley after the smash success of its 2014 performance of Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author. Again under the inspired direction of Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota, the company visits with a new production based on Albert Camus' fantastical yet frightening political allegory about the necessity of resistance in the face of authoritarianism. Demarcy-Mota describes State of Siege as "a distorted mirror of a nightmarish future in which a city is reduced to silence and submission to authority."
