DUE TO A LEAD ACTORS PERSONAL EMERGENCY, ALL PERFORMANCES OF MARAT/SADE HAVE BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL MID MAY
THE PLAY THAT BEGAN A REVOLUTION
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
This is an unrelenting depiction of class struggle which asks whether true revolution comes from changing society or changing oneself. Set in Charenton Asylum, Marat/Sade is almost entirely a “play within a play”. 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, supports the post-revolutionary government led by Napoleon and believes the play 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 deviate entirely into personal opinion. The entire theater is converted into the asylum creating a unique theatrical experience engulfing the audience, with the inmate/actors performing mere inches away in and around them, creating an evening not soon to be forgotten.
