The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center and Whitebox Present a Reading of REVOLT IN ASTURIAS

Join in for an American Premiere reading of the 1935 very first play by Albert Camus, written collectively with Jeanne-Paule Sicard, Yves Bourgeois and Alfred Poignant for Camus's anti-fascist Théâtre du Travail (Workers' Theatre) in Algiers, (Algeria) where he was born.

1933. Election night in Spain. A victory of the far-right, followed by a revolutionary general strike by miners who rejected the results. Madrid, with General Franco wanting in the wings, sends the military to repress the rebellion. After two weeks of heavy, armed fighting 2,000 people died: about 1,500 miners, 250 policeman and soldiers, 200 individuals, 50 priests. The Spanish Army of Africa brutally repressed the rebellion, which became the prelude to the Spanish Civil War.
