About: Cross Purpose

A man returns home to bring good fortune to his Mother and Sister, deciding to remain anonymous. A decision that ultimately proves fatal. He finds them running a guesthouse, murdering their wealthy guests and dumping them in a nearby river. Darkly absurd and tragic consequences ensue in this play by Nobel laureate Albert Camus.

Albert Camus was a French author, and philosopher. His views contributed to the rise of the philosophy known as Absurdism. Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957 "for his important literary production, which with clear-sighted earnestness illuminates the problems of the human conscience in our times".
