‘Marat/Sade’ opens this weekend

Friday is the Center For the Arts opening of “Marat/Sade: The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade” by Peter Weiss. The play is directed by John Deaderick and its music director is Paul Emery.

“Marat/Sade” attempts to shock the audience into dissatisfaction and action against the status quo, mirroring the way de Sade’s play within the play stirs the asylum inmates to high dudgeon and revolution.

The play runs Friday and Saturday and Feb. 17-19, 8 p.m., $15. Ticket outlets are Yabobo, Nevada City; Briarpatch and The Book Seller, Grass Valley; Cherry Records, Auburn.

Call 271-7000 for more information.
