off the WALL productions presents 4.48 Psychosis by Sarah Kane.
In one last act of love to the theater, Sarah Kane wrote what many consider her greatest play, 4.48 Psychosis. A subjective story of clinical depression, the audience is given insight into one particular case – a young woman who stands in the place between life and death. Certain issues are clearly dealt with: whether or not to take medication, the effects and effectiveness of such medication, self-harm, suicide and possible causes of depression. Combined with themes of isolation, dependency, relationships, and love, the result is not just a painfully funny play about one person’s struggle with mental illness, but also one that scratches at the scabs of inadequacy, failure and despair that we all bear at times.
