L&C to present British playwright Sarah Kanes 4.48 Psychosis
Two free workshops are also offered
Sarah Kanes work, 4.48 Psychosis, will be performed this month at Lewis & Clark College.
The production creates a fragmented world in which the multiple voices of a single psyche attempt to understand it.
Employing a vaudevillian structure, the production shifts among worlds, or acts, to replicate an individuals struggle with sanity.
The play is directed by assistant professor Rebecca Lingafelter.
Show dates are March 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fir Acres Theater. Admission is $10 general admission; students and seniors are $7. Seatings are $3 each for the March 14 show.
Two free special panel discussions will be held prior to two of the shows.
The first is March 9 from 6 to 7 p.m. This panel will focus on Kanes work in relationship to theater history, her impact on subsequent playwrights and her contributions to contemporary performance.
The second panel is March 16 from 6 to 7 p.m. and focuses on the different ways that culture represents, understands and constructs otherness.Add a comment
