4:48 Psychosis

Date:

Details:

Written by Sarah Kane
Directed by Jennifer Aust

4.48 Psychosis is a play that was written by British playwright Sarah Kane in 1999. It’s also a poem, a manifesto, a polemic, and a deterioration. It’s about trauma and illness, and grief and bearing witness, and bodies and pain, and love. The etymology of the word Psychosis relates to the animation of the soul and mind.
 It's not what you might expect. Some parts of it don’t make sense. It would be sexy if it wasn’t so hard. 

This is how we get notorious.

Details:

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Benedict Esdale

Forgive us now for what we’ve done.
It started out as a bit of fun.
We’re older now. The Light is dim.
And you are only just beginning.

Love at first sight.
Scrapping in the street.
The teenage epidemic.
Events spiral out of control for six young, struggling fighters.

For now, these hot days, is the mad blood stirring.

In the wake of being diagnosed with ATD - Acquired Toilet Disease, an epidemic plaguing primary schoolteachers worldwide - Ana embarks on a trip across Europe with her brother Carl. What follows is a fantastical journey: part-dream, part Hollywood-pastiche; part family holiday, part sex-romp.
Carl and Ana face new lovers, medical professionals, and shadowy figures throughout Europe. Reality and fantasy blend as Ana crosses borders, both personal and geographic, and grapples with what it means to die and to love a dying person, to be sick and to care for the sick, and, ultimately, what it means to survive.

Ben Barnes, director

Love, revenge, madness... and an undercover gardener!

In a world where the eponymous "Gardener" unsuccessfully tries to put distance between herself and the man she loves (who has stabbed her in a fit of misplaced jealousy), a jilted lover tries to come between his woman and her new fiancé, and a bad tempered young servant lays romantic claims to her older master, anything can happen. And it does. This madcap, exuberant opera by the teenage Mozart plants the seeds of the famous operatic works to come but is a fully realised world in its own right with ravishing melodies and ensembles leaving a scorched landscape (emotional and horticultural) in its wake as the lovers run through the gamut of high emotions towards an exhausted and tenuous happy ending.

Presented in collaboration with Design for Stage and Screen, IADT Dún Laoghaire

Tickets:

Euro 25/17 conc.

Booking:

Advance booking may be made online.

The Samuel Beckett Theatre Box Office (01 - 896 2461) will be open from 3pm on performance evenings only and 11am on Saturday 20 January for 4pm performance.
