Temple Theaters presents
The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade, commonly called Marat/Sade, is a twentieth-century masterpiece. With a cast of sociopaths and schizophrenics, Marat/Sade is a parade of insanity, art and chaos in the wake of the French revolution, and a deep examination of human suffering and class struggle that still resonates today.
“Theatricality and insanity--the two most potent subjects of the contemporary theater--are brilliantly fused." - Susan Sontag
