Sarah Kane’s beautifully dark play, 85-minute play explores the limits of a woman’s mind as she battles depression. 4.48 Psychosis may shock and offend you at times, but its stark poetry, evocative imagery, and message will linger long after.

4.48 Psychosis is the fifth and final play written by the late Sarah Kane. The first production of 4:48 Psychosis was performed under the direction of James Macdonald at the Royal Court Theatre shortly after the English playwright’s untimely death in 1999. The play itself is very minimalist; it lacks specific characters, setting, and is composed of abstract dialogue. Instilling much of her own struggles with clinical depression, Kane composed a fragmented work of poetry that stretches across twenty-four sections in an 85-minute time slot with a 12-member Greek chorus. 

After securing the rights to produce the play—an occurrence that in and of itself is a rarity within the United States—Saltbox Theatre Collective is honored to produce it. Brought to us by Casarotto Ramsay & Associates, Sue Griffiths, and the Kane Estate.
