Oran is an ordinary town, filled with ordinary people. It would be unexpected for anything of importance to happen here. The only signal of the impending plague that throws the town into quarantine is dying rats, found on the streets, tread under foot, and exploding violently in the gutters.
Come listen to five witnesses recount the events of the months when the town was cut off from the rest of the world. A doctor sits in the center of interrogation, reflecting on what it means to be human in a catastrophe.
We intend to present a staged reading for a live audience of physicians, medical students, residents and other interprofessional health workers, friends and family. The performance will be followed by an interactive panel discussion.
