4.48 Psychosis (2020)

12 March 2020 – 14 March 2020 @ Drama Centre Black Box


Presented by Intercultural Theatre Institute

ITI presents a fresh take on 4.48 Psychosis, Sarah Kane’s ground-breaking final work. 

Combining lyricism with dark humour, 4.48 Psychosis is an unvarnished look at the difficulty of questioning and communicating with the outside world through the lens of depression.

Award-winning director Andy Ng Wai-shek directs the international cast of ITI’s graduating cohort in a multicultural interpretation of a modern classic.

“as playful as it is confessional... roaring with life and wit and energy as it gazes unblinkingly at depression and death”
- The Guardian

“sometimes poetic and sometimes shocking... never less than taut and fascinating” - The New York Times

Duration: 1 hour 40 minutes
