Off the WALL productions to Present Sarah Kane's 4.48 PSYCHOSIS
Off the WALL productions presents 4.48 Psychosis by Britsh playwright Sarah Kane.
In one last act of love to the theater before her untimely death in 1999, playwright Sarah Kane wrote what many consider her greatest play, 4.48 Psychosis.
A subjective story of clinical depression, the audience is given insight into one particular case - a young woman who stands in the place between life and death. Certain issues are clearly dealt with: whether or not to take medication, the effects and effectiveness of such medication, self-harm, suicide and possible causes of depression. Combined with themes of isolation, dependency, relationships, and love, the result is not just a painfully funny play about one person's struggle with mental illness, but also one that scratches at the scabs of inadequacy, failure and despair that we all bear at times.
Director Robyne Parrish, movement specialist Moriah Ella Mason, and an original musical score by Reni Monteverde guide the all-female cast, Erika Cuenca, Tammy Tsai, and Siovhan Christensen in the exploration of this stream of consciousness work.
