Off-Broadway Production of MARAT/SADE Opens for Limited Engagement Tonight
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. The production opens at The Players Theatre, tonight, May 30th, 2014.
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.
After TP&co's sold out run of Much Ado About Nothing, the "Exciting and Innovative" company returns with a timely production, presented for a limited engagement Off-Broadway at The Players Theatre.
