A Peste | Centro Dramático Galego

A peste is a theatrical version by Cándido Pazó, inspired by the work of Albert Camus, with which to reflect on the behaviour of society and individuals during crisis situations.

The story tells the story of what happens in the city of Oran, through the narration of Dr. Rieux, during a plague. The city is under siege and its inhabitants are placed under quarantine. The play focuses on the vicissitudes of the imprisoned inhabitants, on how they cope with the plague and seek meaning in their situation: first in a selfish struggle for survival, and then through collective, communal effort. Over the course of a year, the plague progresses until it is brought under control and disappears. The people joyfully celebrate the end of the plague, except for Dr. Rieux who, after the futile sacrifice and loss of loved ones, is only cautiously optimistic, knowing that the plague may return in the future.
