A prodigal son returns home unrecognized, having been abroad for twenty years, to an inn run by his mother and sister—who have been killing lodgers in order to make a living for themselves. In an immersive reimagining of this rarely performed play, described by Camus as the theatrical piece that “resembles him the most,” The Misunderstanding explores concepts of grief, guilt, and the absurdity of existence in a world that is equally cruel to the innocent and the criminal.
