Marat / Sade

15 Jul

Marat / Sade, 2012. Pen-and-ink on Bristol paper, 9 x 12 in.

Rushing this to press, I write to encourage you to see Thrillpeddlers’s production of Marat / Sade at the Brava Theater on 24th Street in the Mission.  It will run through July 29th.  I was blessed with an invitation from a friend to watch the opening night performance.

As with their revival of Pearls over Shanghai in 2009, you will not be disappointed.  Raucous and darkly humorous, with a strong ensemble cast, revolution is examined through “[t]he 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.”
