Exploring the autonomy and authenticity of people with mental illness on stage

After a life filled with controversy, the aristocrat Marquis de Sade spends his final years in the psychiatric hospital of Charenton. The Frenchman – whose dubious honour it is to have the terms ‘sadism’ and ‘sadomasochism’ coined after his name – starts performing theatre along with his fellow patients. As an admirer of the French Revolution, de Sade reenacts the death of the legendary revolutionary Jean-Paul Marat.

Monster Truck’s ‘Marat/Sade’ ties into their past work, which explores the autonomy and authenticity of people with a mental illness on stage. Who decides the rules? Who directs whom? Their revolutionary approach is to cast of people with a mental illness.
