Network Theatre Company presents:

4.48 Psychosis

By Sarah Kane, directed by Lauren Waterman

4.48 Psychosis cleverly portrays a mind fragmented by mental illness, in a poetic, abstract, ironic, darkly humorous and deeply visceral way.  It is a scathing critique of the medical profession and society, a therapeutic exercise, an act of desperation and, sadly, the playwright’s suicide note.

No setting, plot, characters or distribution of lines are specified by the playwright, which has left these up to the directors and cast to interpret and to create something new.  The play invites the audience to experience a form of psychosis, in which reality dissolves even as it appears.

The production contains flashing lights, loud noises and themes of mental illness and suicide.  Not suitable for children.
