Genre: Drama
by Peter Weiss, directed by Michael Kimmel

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, or MARAT/SADE, as the play is more commonly known, concerns the performance of a play by inmates of an early 1800s insane asylum, with script & direction by the infamous Marquis de Sade. The story of the play concerns the assassination of the revolutionary Marat by Charlotte Corday, but the play itself becomes a debate between various characters, all played by mentally-ill inmates of the asylum. The debate is further fueled by their insanity, unpredictability as performers & the staff's reactions to both their behavior & the often subversive nature of the script they play out.
