The Execution

By Marie-Claire Blais
Translated by David Lobdell

The Execution is Marie-Claire Blais’s only play for the stage. Set in a boarding school, it tells the story of two schoolboys who plot the murder of one of their classmates and enact the crime. As a play, it is a study of innocence, evil and complicity, themes well-known to readers of Blais’s fiction.

“A brilliant play about the maturation of evil.”
