Tramway present 4.48 Psychosis in Glasgow from 6 - 15 Nov 2008.  Artistic Director Adrian Osmond says: ‘How do you deliver the intensity and honesty of Kane’s writing to an audience? Many of the techniques that theatre uses to distance the audience, to remind them it is imaginary, don’t belong here. Instead, we’re recording a range of people to build a soundscape out of the text. Our aim is to create the sensation of a mind teeming with voices, the countless parts of the persona. We want to reach beyond individual case history as well, and highlight that people from all areas of society, of all ages, are affected by mental illness.’

On 7 Nov 2008 there is a post-show discussion with Professor Stephen Lawrie of the University of Edinburgh.  Click in the image for more information.
