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."
