About this show

In the year 1808, confined in the insane asylum after some of his more flamboyant 'affairs,' the notorious Marquis de Sade stages the assassination of Marat, one of the French Revolution's bloodiest leaders. The actors are the other inmates; the audience - the visitors of the asylum. In this play within a play, madness and sanity, violence and affection, theatre and reality blend seamlessly in the shadow box of death, politics and desire. Marat/Sade is written by Peter Weiss and directed by Magda Romanska.
