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

By Peter Weiss
Laura Hackman, director

Peter Weiss’ 1963 classic exploration of madness, history, and revolution takes on new resonance this fall. At Charenton Asylum, the inmates reenact the final days of the French Revolution for the visiting director and his upper-class family. With found instruments, props, and imaginative costumes, the production uses song and story to craft a parable about the delights and dangers of revolutionary action.
