Drama (Weitz Theater)

Thu., Nov. 14       7:30    Colleen Scallen ’20 Theater Comps: 4.48 Psychosis

What do you offer? Do you think it’s possible for a person to be born in the wrong body? How can I speak again? Do you feel nothing? How do I stop? Sarah Kane poses these questions in 4.48 Psychosis, her avant-garde, poetic piece that interrogates identity, purpose, consequence, and need through the lens of mental illness. Using a poetic framework and specifying no characters or stage directions, Kane allows for an exploration of mental illness that is as unique and mercurial as the individuals who struggle with it.
