The year is 1808, 19 years after the height of the French Revolution. The director of the clinic of Charenton has invited the local bourgeoisie to witness the latest theatrical offering of one of the clinic's most notorious inmates, the Marquis de Sade. De Sade has directed the other inmates of the asylum in a unique retelling of the events leading up to the stabbing death of Jean-Paul Marat, one of the French Revolution's most virulent journalists and a leader of the extremist movement. His life ended when Charlotte Corday, a young follower in Normandy, stabbed Marat to death.
By Peter Weiss. English version by Geoffrey Skelton, verse adaptations by Adrian Mitchell, music composed by Richard Peaslee.
