De Sade and revolution at Prague psychiatric hospital

As a play about asylum inmates putting on a play of the death of French revolutionary Jean-Paul Marat, Weiss’ work already casts a kaleidoscopic glance at political conformity and extremism of two distinct eras of history. With the upcoming performances taking place in an abandoned space in Prague’s largest psychiatric hospital, a whole new chapter of modern history is added to the mix.
