The Queens Players announce the opening of “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”.

This modern classic, under the direction of veteran theatre director Kelly Johnston, is one of the most controversial pieces of theatre created in the last 40 years. Join the Marquis De Saude and the inmates as we explore the dark side of post revolution France and the story of those who came out of the revolution no better than they went in, and are not entirely pleased with the course of events as they fell.“I’m very excited about this production,” says Johnston. “This show is going to be an immersive, environmental piece. The audience will actually be on the stage with the actors. It’ll feel like they’re actually in the asylum.”

Due to the nature of the environmental staging only 20 seats will be available per performance, so it is important to reserve seats in advance online at www.thequeensplayers.comor by calling the theatre at 718 392 0722.

Marat/Sade will be performed as a part of the Queens Players month long celebration of the Halloween Season and will be running along side the Queens Players production of Theatre Du Grand-Guignol: Tales of Horror and Fear and culminating in the company’s first annual Halloween party including live bands, classic horror movie screenings, and performances from Theatre Du Grand-Guignol: Tales of Horror and Fear.

This show may not be appropriate for children or people with serious health issues.
