Die Verfolgung und Ermordung Jean Paul Marats dargestellt

This extraordinary play which swept across Europe before coming to America is based on two historical truths the infamous Marquis de Sade was confined in the lunatic asylum of Charenton where he staged plays and the revolutionary Jean Paul Marat was stabbed in a bathtub by Charlotte Corday at the height of the Terror during the French Revolution But this play within a play is not historical drama Its thought is as modern as today's police states and The Bomb its theatrical impact has everywhere been called a major innovation It is total theatre philosophically problematic visually terrifying It engages the eye the ear and the mind with every imaginable dramatic device technique and stage picture even including song and dance All the forces and elements possible to the stage are fused in one overwhelming experience This is theatre such as has rarely been seen before The play is basically concerned with the problem of revolution Are the same things true for the masses and for their leaders? And where in modern times lie the borderlines of sanity?

    The Persecution and Assassination of Jean Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquise de SadeIsn't that it? Maybe spelling errorsI saw this play performed at Arena Stage in Washington DC somewhere around 40 years ago It was a great production of a very interesting play which was all the rage back then I should probably take another look at it seeing as I now know at least a bit about the French Revolution which is the context of the play The edition I have is not available on Goodreads it was published by Atheneum in 1968 with the English version of the play done by Geoffrey SkeltonWhat I find amazing given my memory is that the full title of the play has stuck with me all these years Must have been pretty catchy I guess How could anyone forget it?
