The Camp by Griselda Gambaro

In October 1981 ‘The Camp’ was given its British premiere in a multi-racial production Internationalist Theatre(originally called New INternationalist Theatre)) in London. Directed by Barry Phillips, the cast included Richard Trent, Roy Lee and Angelique Rockas. Translation by William Oliver 1971. Considered one of Gambaro`s masterpieces the play belongs to: “ the school of allegorical theatre of oppression, written in a society in which brutality and censorship suppress democracy and the imagination … (the play) draws political parallels by reference to Nazi concentration camps…the theatre of the absurd and the horrors on inner nightmare” by Micheline Wandor , who in her Time Out preview pointed out the exciting risks that this new company were taking not only in relation to its internationalist casting policy , but also in its choice of plays
