About: 4.48 Psychosis by Sarah Kane

4.48am is when the will to live is at its lowest ebb.

In this uncompromising autobiographical approach to Kane’s elusive and elliptical prose poem, the central character is a woman in the throes of a terrifying psychological ordeal. Throughout the play she confronts a series of figures who try to reason with her: a close friend, a male doctor, another patient, a female lover; until she ends up attacking her own psyche.

Through anger, grief and despair we witness an intense performance in this heroic struggle for life.

Reviews

‘Watching 4.48 Psychosis can be almost unbearably harrowing. But when it is staged as brilliantly as it is here, it also feels profound, moving – and unforgettable.’
