Pink Banana Theatre and Worlds Stage Theatre present a theatrical collaboration:
A stylized workshop presentation of the classic drama "The Persecution and Assassination of Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade"
About the play
In post revolutionary France the inmates of an asylum present a play about the murder of Jean-Paul Marat under the direction of the notorious Marquis de Sade. As the director of the asylum and his family sit down expecting to see a patriotic display, they are confronted with a performance that is unruly, shocking and outspoken.
"It's a stylized workshop performance of MARAT/SADE with scripts in the actors' hands but also some costumes, simple set design and lots of music" - Matt Kemple, Artistic Producer of Pink Banana Theatre Co.
"We plan to contemporize the asylum with elements of punk rock and stylized movement work." - Gretchen Mahkorn, Artistic Director of The Worlds Stage Theatre
