Lights up on an 18th-century insane asylum with a very famous—or rather, infamous—inmate: the Marquis de Sade. The depraved writer, philosopher, and nobleman has directed his fellow prisoners in a seemingly straightforward play about the French revolution and, more specifically, the assassination of the radical politician Jean-Paul Marat. All is not as it appears, however. Only nominally in control, de Sade looks on with sardonic reserve as the players begin to depart from the script and stage their own violent rebellion, much to the dismay of the asylum’s director. Updated to the modern day, the Theatre Project’s production of this unconventional play-within-a-play captures the script’s themes of class division and institutional hypocrisy, while also comparing the inmates’ discontent to such contemporary issues as the rise of the 1% and government surveillance.

The Theatre Project

There’s growth as an actor, and then there’s growth as a human being—but for the founders of The Theatre Project, there’s no difference between the two. Emphasizing that actors are indeed ever-evolving human beings and not, as previously thought, aliens practicing how to be human beings, The Theatre Project has transformed into more than a theater company. Driven by a creative ensemble of artists who’ve banded together to revamp the modern theatergoing experience, it has become an organism. With fresh adaptations such as a take on 4.48 Pyschosis, the Project has earned the title of “Adventurous New Company” from The Villager, and its world-premiere productions have been rewarded with sold-out shows and have inspired Downtown Magazine to hail the Project as “one to watch in the next year.” Yet, with each subsequent year, it continues to remain one to watch, as it puts imagination and teamwork into brand-new works and creative interpretations of the classics.<p>
