WSC Avant Bard entertains audiences with cutting-edge productions of modern and classic theatrical works, challenging audiences with memorably intense performances. Written by French existentialist Albert Camus, Les Justes (The Just Ones) sheds light on the machinations and crises of consciences felt by a terrorist group of Russian revolutionaries as they plot the death of a grand duke and determine how to split a check five ways at dinner. WSC Avant Bard veteran Rahaleh Nassri presents a fresh translation of the play and company member Jay Hardee directs, and the Artisphere’s Black Box Theatre creates an intimate space for actors to forge an emotional bond with show-goers, deepening the betrayal when fans find them acting for other audiences.
