Produced by new theatre company, Bare Naked Theatre, the production delves into the complex issues of clinical depression, self harm, dependency and isolation. Composed of 24 sections which have no specified setting or characters, the language of 4:48 Psychosis varies between the naturalistic and the highly abstract or poetic. The playwright herself dealt with issues of serious mental illness and committed suicide at 28 shortly after completing the work.

Bare Naked Theatre Artistic Director Kendall-Jane Rundle has recently relocated to Melbourne from Montreal to launch the theatre company here and is presenting its inaugural season with 4:48 Psychosis. Her overall mission is to produce multi-dimensional, dynamic work and bring together both experienced and emerging artists to cultivate pieces that challenge limits and audience expectations.

What the Critics say about 4:48 Psychosis

“What we get is (a) play that scratches at the scabs of inadequacy, failure and despair that we all bear” The Guardian

“Observe something that thoroughly and alarmingly earns the literary pigeon-hole ‘psycho-drama’ Time Out
“One heck of an important message at its very core about love, perception and mental health…” The Reviews Hub
