This play within a play is not historical drama Its thought is as modern as today's police states and The Bomb; its theatrical impact has everywhere been called a major innovation It is total theatre philosophically problematic visually terrifying It engages the eye the ear and the mind with every imaginable dramatic device techniue and stage picture. The name of this play along with my interest in the French Revolution was what generated my desire to read it The structure of the play is rather bizarre in a good way inmates of Charenton acting in a play but the inmates are actors themselves among other things and the content of the play is very good essentially a debate about revolution between Marat Sade and Jacues Roux Sade plays the disillusioned revolutionary Marat the radical bourgeois revolutionary and Roux described in the dramatis personae as a radical socialist who advocates for the revolution of the sans culotte he is silenced and dragged away as he ends his radical invocationsDespite the hefty themes of the play there s definitely a sense of levity running throughout The Warden of the Asylum Coulmier is a Napoleon apologist the play takes place in 1808 and often runs to the director de Sade to voice his complaints comically saying things like we have no need for revolution now that Napoleon is our emperor and everyone has bread They also play p Girondist Duperret based off Claude Romain Lauze de Perret as a real horny guy who is constantly feeling p Charlotte Corday though the latter repeatedly rejects and pushes him off I didn t think this was particularly funny By the end of the play it feels like a revolution is about to break out before Coulmier abruptly calls for the curtains to be dropped ending the playAlso a lot of the play is structured in a Classical way it is in verse as opposed to prose despite having heavy postmodern themes ambiguityundecidability metatheatricality which seems A White Slave in Turkey Book 1 - A BDSM Novel uniue to meOverall I thought the script was good and I see there is a filmed version of it Like virtually every play and especially postmodernabsurdist plays it feels like in order to really portray how disorienting it is you must watch it be performed Would recommend to anyone interested in postmodernsurrealistabsurdist plays along with those interested in the French Revolution in general though the play definitely has a far left bent to it not that I m complaining as Weiss joined the Swedish Communist Party a few years after he wrote this play I feel as though people of most political persuasions can find something to enjoy in this Speechless It isn t an easy play to review It isn t literature that can be easily dissected to the semi plot that the title of the play betrays The beauty comes in the setting It comes with the distance the main characters place themselves on stage both physically and as characters They share monologues righteous moral standards and a prison between them The verses are almost always philosophical meditations which can be seen as bunch of pretentious lines or Marxist agenda As thenderlying theme is necessity of revolution Weiss touches pon people and their king and the madness it must take for a revolution to spring Oh the irony of it all The actors who are performing this play in #an asylum and the award for book title goes to We re all free and #asylum and the award for longest book title goes to We re all free and to die like dogs Every death even the cruelest deathdrowns in the total indifference of NatureNature herself would watch nmovedif we destroyed the entire human raceI hate Naturethis passionless spectator this nbreakable iceberg facethat can bear everythin. This extraordinary play which swept across Europe before coming to America is based on two historical truths the infamous Maruis de Sade was confined in the lunatic asylum of Charenton where he staged plays; and the revolutionary Jean Paul Marat was stabbed in a bathtub by Charlotte Corday at the height of the Terror during the French Revolution But.

D over againI read a lot of plays and #I VE ALWAYS FOUND THE EXPERIENCE A BIT DISAPPOINTING #ve always found the experience a bit disappointing and a smattering of stage directions is sually not enough to have the sort of moving experience that marks good theater But MaratSade works on two levels The dialogue itself can be read as literature itself It is profound and philosophical The stage directions inmates sing haunting death marches are beat by sadistic nurses are forced into nonsensical tasks like crossing the stage while hopping on one leg suggest that in the hands of a good director the play could be chilling The delightfully disturbing production combined with the dizzyingly profound dialogue I can only imagine it Funny how I profound dialogue I can only imagine it Funny how I t read this for years but a few bits from the production I saw part of TV version watched in class have stuck in my head inc we want what we want and we don t care howwe want our revolution now and the singy songy bit whenever the name Charlotte Corday pops p Not that you run into a lot of references to Charlotte Corday outside the

Jeopardy Vérité (Love at Center Court, uestion Sade is probably the greatest single work composed to the norms of Antonin Artaud s theatre of cruelty It is loud energetic and thoroughly engaging I had the good fortune to see it performed life by Poland s national theatre in Warsaw in 1982 in a production that was every bit as good as the one that was filmed starring Glenda JacksonWeiss thesis that revolutions involve competing madnesses is very compelling His treatment of French political thought during the period of the French Revolution is deft and eruditeDo not bother to read his play It is meant purely for the stage Try to download or rent a copy of the movie directed by the great Peter Brook and featuring Glenda Jackson Patrick Magee and Clifford Rose There were few fieldtrips in high school but one wasite memorable I d been to the Art Institute of Chicago before certainly but we were taken to see a travelling exhibit of the works of David Of those paintings I was most struck by The Death of Marat the image of which has remained clear Jim Gottreich the teacher of sopho European history introduced s to the study of the French Revolution which of course was so like our own Looking for role models I did not much attend to the Terror By senior year and Tim Little s course in AP European I had also become attracted to Marx and friends with a number of professed Marxists in the classes wh Possibly the most amazing play I ve ever read I have never seen it on stage but there is a riveting film nder the direction of Peter Brooks that can be found on DVD with a little effort But the reading of this play is a revelation in itself It is very complex a play within a play and works on so many social and philosophical levels that you come away dizzy If you read the title you ve read the plot But it is the ideas expressed in the play within the play that makes this a classic Strange a little challenging and an niue experience The Persecution and Assassination of Jean Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Maruise de SadeIsn t that it Maybe spelling errorsI saw this play performed at Arena Stage in Washington DC somewhere around 40 years ago. Even including song and dance All the forces and elements possible to the stage are fused in one overwhelming experience This is theatre such as has rarely been seen before The play is basically concerned with the problem of revolution Are the same things true for the masses and for their leaders And where in modern times lie the borderlines of sani. ,
