4:48 Psychosis and Correspondance: A Ballet (About Communication); No Dancing (?!) or Let's Not and Say We Did New Review (Theater and Comedy) The Short List (Theater) Recommended Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through July 17 2010

As staged by Beau O'Reilly, 4:48 Psychosis, Sarah Kane's exploration of depression and suicide--and the last play she wrote before hanging herself in 1999--is ironically lively, sometimes humorous, and always thought-provoking. In the lead role, Kelly Anchors reveals the mental state of the clinically depressed at 4:48 AM, "when desperation visits." The second item on this double bill, Correspondance, shifts away from Kane's mania into more unambiguously comedic territory: the main character in this 40-minute, one-act collaboration between Chris Bower and Tim Racine finds that the self-help tape he's listening to is playing a game of mind control with him. --Marissa Oberlander
