Mike as Marquis de Sade

Marat/SadeThe 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

By Peter Weiss

Directed by Doug Paterson             Co-Director by Lara Marsh

Total theatre that engages the eye, the ear and the mind.  Two historical truths: the infamous Marquis de Sade was confined in the lunatic asylum of Charenton, where he staged plays; and the revolutionary Jean-Paul Marat was stabbed in a bathtub by Charlotte Corday at the height of the Terror during the French Revolution. All the forces and elements possible to the stage are fused in one overwhelming experience. The play is about revolution – Are the same things true for the masses and for their leaders? And where, in modern times, lie the borderlines of sanity?  And what if, in these modern/post-modern/pre-collapse times, the play isn’t really set in an insane asylum in France in 1808, but in a maximum-security US prison in 2018, enacted by prisoners for their “recreation, entertainment, and education”
