PRODUCTIONS AT HARRIS CENTER
FALCON'S EYE THEATRE AT FOLSOM LAKE COLLEGE
THE PERSECUTION AND ASSASSINATION OF JEAN-PAUL MARAT
AS PERFORMED BY THE INMATES OF THE ASYLUM OF CHARENTON UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE MARQUIS DE SADE
Friday, November 3rd - Sunday, November 19th, 2017
Falcon's Eye Theatre presents 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?"
All audience members will be briefly moving during part of the performance of MARAT/SADE. Audience will stand and walk for approximately ten minutes during the performance.
There is a mandatory coat and bag check – including all handbags. Your items will be stored and locked throughout the performance. Please plan accordingly.
Accommodations are available for people with mobility impairments.
Real water effects are used in the production. Be aware of the small chance you might get a little wet.
The performance contains adult language and other adult content that parents might not find suitable for children. Recommended for age 12 and older.
The Falcon's Eye is the production arm of the Department of Theatre and Cinema Arts at Folsom Lake College. The Sacramento News & Review praised last season's Cyrano: "this memorable production sings throughout—from the gifted cast to the spot-on staging." In their own words, "we love to create provocative theatre that looks into what it means to be alive and how we manage to live together...to provide you with insightful theatre that brings new perspectives to your life."
