Director Guy Ben-Aharon and actor Nael Nacer will present a staged reading of Kamel Daoud's prize-winning novel Meursault, contre-enquête (The Meursault Investigation).

Considered a literary and historical retelling of Albert Camus' celebrated novel, L'Étranger (The Stranger), Daoud's Meursault, Contre-Enquête gained popularity and was awarded many prizes, including the Prix Goncourt du premier roman in 2015. The novel gives voice to the brother of the anonymous "Arab" killed by Camus' main character, Meursault, and examines the seminal work in a post-colonial context.
