4.48 Psychosis

4.48 Psychosis

November 5-9, 12-16, 2008

Playwright: Sarah Kane

Director: Barry Cavin Description: Sarah Kane's 4.48 Psychosis offers the audience an exquisite ceremony that probes what we all fear about love and beauty: with great happiness comes the capacity for great suffering. This intense conceptual work blends poetry, humor, and stunning visuals to reveal the interior of a person who has suffered the joy of uncontrollable love and is contemplating the usefulness of going on in the aftermath of tragic loss. 4.48 Psychosis creates an intimate portrait of the darkest thoughts any of us have considered and most of us do everything to avoid. But what we fear also compels us and there is no better place to confront this human condition of love, beauty, and loss than in the sanctity of theatre.
