In Doug Wright's Obie Award winning play, The Marquis de Sade has enraged all of France by smuggling tales "so pornographic that they cause men to murder and women to miscarry" from his cell at Charenton Asylum. The Abbe de Coulmier, a gentle humantarian, is ordered to restore control through more medieval means. But for a man with the Marquis' unique tastes, will punishment serve as a deterrent? How else can a tale in the Marquis' world end but in chaos and catastrophe?
Raw, wickedly funny, often disturbing and sometimes even sentimental, this is a show that should not be missed; except by children and the easily offended. It is recommended for mature audiences only. $18-22, discounts for seniors and college students
