ABOUT THE PLAY
Falcon's Eye Theatre's fall production is The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum at Charenton Under the Direction of The Marquis de Sade by Peter Weiss. This play has been called a major modern theatrical innovation. This "total theatre" event engages the eye, the ear, and the mind with every imaginable theatrical device fused in one breathtaking experience. Revolution is the driving force of this tale, which asks the questions "Are the same things true for the masses and for their leaders? And where, in modern times, lie the borderlines of sanity?"
