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 is one of the most polarizing theatrical experiences of all time - and the winner of the 1966 Tony Award for Best Play - "Marat/Sade" throws the audience into a nightmare of insanity as the head of the Asylum of Charenton attempts to maintain control of a performance that is as likely to erupt into an uprising as the events it depicts. Wild shifts between philosophical argument and physical violence keep the audience of the play as well as the audience in the theater off-guard and forced to confront class disparity, the boundaries of art and the nature of revolution.
