4.48 Psychosis at Lewis & Clark College
Fir Acres Theater, Lewis & Clark
0615 SW Palatine Hill Rd
March 8th - 16th
4.48 Psychosis is a play for the 21st Century. Devoid of delineated voices and textual indications of the number or gender of the performers, Sarah Kane’s seminal work creates a fragmented world in which the multiple voices of a single psyche attempt to understand itself. Marked by its post-dramatic structure and its painful position as Kane’s last play, 4.48 Psychosis asks us to encounter the complexity of the human experience in all of its terror and beauty. Inspired by the distinct vignettes within the text, the ensemble will create discreet worlds to contain Kane’s raw and revealing language. Employing a vaudevillian structure, our production will shift among worlds or “acts” to create a kaleidoscope experience of an individual’s struggle with sanity.
Performances on March 8, 9, 14, 15, & 16 at 7:30 p.m. Directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Rebecca Lingafelter.
