WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Theatre Project presents TP&co's contemporary adaptation of Marat/Sade, Peter Weiss' avant-garde drama, with a fresh take on a dangerous play that taps directly into an undercurrent of social unease. Fueled by civil unrest and the dawn of information warfare, Marat/Sade is a delightfully macabre tale of class struggle and revolution. The infamous Marquis de Sade directs a play-within-the-play depicting the death of Jean-Paul Marat, a radical journalist whose words helped drive the extremism of the French Revolution. This Tony-winning drama poses the question of whether revolution can really bring about lasting change. In a social climate where the 99% is once again taking to the streets against repression and censorship, this timely production is presented for a limited engagement Off-Broadway at The Players Theatre.
