This modern adaptation of Peter Weiss' avant garde drama places you in the audience of the most bizarre play you've ever attended. The infamous Marquis de Sade, from the confines of a lunatic asylum, directs his fellow inmates in a recreation of the murder of French revolutionary Jean-Paul Marat. The play-within-the-play reveals profound statements about revolution and class struggles wrapped in a nightmarish package. The "actors" all suffer from various mental illnesses that become apparent on stage and the action is interrupted by strange musical interludes. Contrasting Marat's passionate fight against oppression with de Sade's unapologetic nihilism, this Tony-winning drama poses the question of whether any revolution can really bring about lasting change. In a time when revolutions of various kinds are taking place around the world, this fresh take on a controversial play taps directly into that spirit of social unrest for a truly thought-provoking and astonishing evening of theater.
