Plague Plays 🗓

Introducing a unique course for medical students.

Plague Plays

If you are looking for a place to put your thoughts about the life we are living in medicine now join me for an informal Reader’s Theater, called Plague Plays.

We’ll read the original version of Camus’s The Plague side by side with a faithful dramatic rendering by the British Playwright Neil Bartlett. We’ll read the dramatic version on zoom together over four sessions.

We’ll try to strike a balance between literary and personal engagement with the text. In chaotic times, texts such as this can help us to find focus, meaning and respite.

We will offer optional writing prompts & exercises for those who are interested.

Dates and Times:
Mondays Feb 21, 28 and March 7, 14th  2022 from 7-8:30pm
