Pistarckle Theater Presents

mrtsd_webMARAT SADE

by Peter Weiss

Pistarckle Theater is proud to present, in a limited run, “THE PERSECUTION AND ASSASSINATION OF JEAN-PAUL MARAT AS PERFORMED BY THE INMATES OF THE ASYLUM OF CHARENTON UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE MARQUIS DE SADE“, the 1966 multiple Tony Award winning play written by Peter Weiss.  For two weeks only, audiences in St. Thomas will be able to participate in a truly unique theater experience as Pistarckle Theater will be transformed into the Charenton Asylum and the audience attend as guests of the director of the asylum….

Set in the historical Charenton Asylum,Marat/Sade is almost entirely a “play within a play”.  The play directed by the Marquis de Sade takes place during the revolution, culminating in the assassination of Jean-Paul Marat.  The actors are the inmates of the asylum, and the nurses and supervisors occasionally step in to restore order.  The bourgeois director of the hospital, Coulmier, supervises the performance, accompanied by his wife and daughter.  He is a supporter of the post-revolutionary government, in place at the time of the production, and believes the play he has organized to be an endorsement of his patriotic views.  His patients, however, have other ideas, and they make a habit of speaking lines he had attempted to suppress or deviating entirely into personal opinion.  Suffice it to say that they, as people who came out of the revolution no better than they went in, are not entirely pleased with the course of events as they come to be.
