After an ordinary man is unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder, he ultimately finds himself convicted of a lack of compassion in this existential treatise on "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd."

This existential novel by Albert Camus has been deconstructed through improvisation and shaped into a sensorially rich and socially daring adaptation by Brandon Walker and the members of The Seeing Place Theater Ensemble.
