‘La Merde’ is part two of the SKaGeN trilogy about heaven, purgatory and hell. Browsing in French literature, SKaGeN continues their search for the sense and nonsense of life. In ‘By my fault’ (2005) SKaGeN interpreted Jean Genet’s ‘Le Bagne’. For ‘La Merde’ the theatre group had a thorough reading of Albert Camus’ ‘La Peste’, a novel about a city in Algeria that falls prey to the plague. In the quarantine between the city walls, the characters are sentenced to each other. They try and make the best of it, through engagement, love and perseverance.
