by Sarah Kane
Caravan Theatre tours the critically-acclaimed play 4.48 Psychosis in September and October 2020.
4.48 Psychosis, by radical and influential British playwright Sarah Kane, takes a deep dive into issues of mental health and suicide. Lyrical yet raw, grim yet humorous, the play beautifully expresses ugly truths: isolation, stigma, and the longing for self-esteem and community understanding. Integrating movement into Kane’s poetic text, Artistic Director, Kathy France, leads a talented cast of notable Maritime-based performers Margaret Legere and Rebecca Wolfe.
Following each performance, audience members are invited to join the cast and community wellness partners for a post-show conversation addressing issues of mental health, identity and inclusion. This event (performance and conversation) runs 90 minutes without an intermission.
Performances take place outdoors with audience following COVID-19 protocols. Audience members will be seated in zones that can accommodate from 1 to 10 ticket-holders.
