Camille Summary

Camille: After La Dame aux Camelias by Alexandre Dumas fils by Alexandre Dumas

"""All I ever wanted was a man who wouldn't ask me questions"" Across the foyer of a crowded theatre, a handsome young man catches sight of the most expensive prostitute in town. When they meet, a mutual obsession is ignited - one that tears both their worlds apart. Set amidst the glittering splendours and miseries of 19th century Paris, Camille has scandalised and fascinated audiences and theatres, cinemas and opera houses for over a hundred and fifty years. Neil Bartlett's new version returns to the original novel for its shockingly frank and emotional portrayal of a woman who can afford anything - except to fall in love. Camille opened at the Lyric Hammersmith on 6th March 2003."

Camille Reviews

"Bartlett's adaptation... enfolds the issues in a rich texture, characteristically theatrical, but precludes any escapism into a mere emotional journey." - British Theatre Guide

About Alexandre Dumas

"Neil Bartlett is one of his generation's most respected and innovative theatre directors. His highly individual translations of French and German classical theatre, and charcteristically theatrical adaptations of Dickens, most of them originated while he was Artistic Director of the Lyric Hammersmith in London, have been played around the world. His plays have premiered at the Royal Court, at the Manchester International Festival and at the National Theatre in London. "
