Original Playwright - Albert Camus

Synopsis:

A play from France. Les Justes, or 'the ones in the right', paints a troubled picture of a group of terrorists in Russia in 1905 attempting to assassinate a powerful aristocrat. They are fighting for freedom from poverty on behalf of their fellow men and beginning the campaign that will become The Russian Revolution. Camus, deeply affected by the political disillusionment which followed the Second World War in France, offers up their motives and those of their enemies, and asks us if intimacy is the only freedom worth the struggle.

Synopsis:

adaptation of his eerily relevant exploration of politically-motivated violence, Les Justes (The Just Ones). Les Justes brings us into the world of a group of Russian revolutionaries during the turn of the 20th century. Meticulously, they plot to kill the Grand Duke. However, when one of their group refuses to go through with the plan because it would injure the Grand Duke's young nephew and niece, the group begins to question itself.
