When The Persecution and Assassanation of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade opened in 1964, audiences were shocked by its wild arguments, militant music, and frenzied violence. Set in a 18th-century insane asylum, the infamous Marquis de Sade and the revolutionary Jean Marat hold high debate of The Individual versus The Collective. From their passionate speeches to the deranged inmates banging pots and pans in "The Copulation Song," this show is unpredictable, disturbing and raucous.
