A goodbye note on stage

Simultaneously piercing and confessional, 4.48 Psychosis is a contemporary theatrical production gazing both at death and depression.

Brought by Polish cutting edge company TR Warszawa, the play is described as a combination of utter despondency and British humour as it tells the story of a young woman trapped by panic, anguish and humiliation. Performed in an unconventional format where there is neither division of roles nor stage directions, 4.48 Psychosis draws an image of a woman feeling rejected by people and God. On the brink of painful exhaustion, the protagonist decides to kill herself. Written by Sarah Kane, the piece was posthumously produced for the first time at the Royal Court in London in 2000, 18 months after the playwright took her own life, aged 28.

Taking on the main role, screen and stage actress Magdalena Cielecka embodies a woman afflicted by mental illness, through a superb performance distinguished with the Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh Festival in 2008. The production caused a stir in New York, at Lille’s Festival Scenes Etrangers in France, and the Hong Kong Arts Festival, besides various performances in cities like Beijing and Shanghai. As a whole, the company have been collecting international applause, from the USA to Europe and Asia.

Embraced by a whirlpool of light and darkness, silence and pulsating music, our drama lovers must brace themselves for the deep impact of a powerful acting framed in filmic style. 4.48 Psychosis is unmissable for anyone passionate about vanguardist arts.
