'Aujourd'hui, maman est morte.'
So begins one of the greatest novels ever written: L'Étranger (The Stranger) by Albert Camus.
We celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of its writer, Albert Camus, with a dramatised reading of The Outsider featuring five actors, live oud music, and photographs from Algeria.
This one-off event is directed by James Runcie.
