“ As compact and beautiful as a diamond in structure – and yet the mood it inspires is as black at coal”- Time out
New trailblazing theatre outfit, WestWorks Theatre Company, invite Galway audiences to a visceral performative experience when they open Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis on April 16th.
Kane’s final play is a fearless and unorthodox portrait of an experience of clinical depression. WestWork’s production will present this controversial poetic text at 126 Gallery, exploring the fragmented narrative in a bold homage to it’s author. Audiences will witness a raw performance experience, with a text that tackles many taboos still ingrained in society in relation to both mental health and institutional treatments.
At points darkly humours and at others an ode to the fragile human condition, Kane’s controversial work finds new physicality, new life and prescribed love in this highly anticipated production from the locally based theatre company.
