About The Event

4.48 Psychosis was the last work of the radical British playwright Sarah Kane, first performed posthumously in 2000 after her suicide in 1999.  The numbers in the title refer to the time in the morning when Kane would wake when suffering from severe clinical depression, and in the play a time at which clarity and bleak despair strike together. The free-form text describes one experience of depression, told by Kane with poetry, anger and dark humour, in an extraordinary work that describes the process of an individual coming to terms with their own psychosis.
