Pick of the week theatre
Psychosis 4:48 Anthony Skuse’s production of Sarah Kane’s often harrowing text is performed on a stage made open and bleak by two large mirrored walls that make the space seem to stretch on forever. The voice is Kane’s, and it is that of a woman so sunk into an angry, self-loathing depression all she can think of is escape from a world that she finds impossible to bear. Kane’s script does not assign lines to characters. Skuse divides it among three women: Lucy Heffernan, Ella Prince and Zoe Trilsbach-Harrison. Old Fitzroy Theatre, 129 Dowling Street, Sydney. Tonight, 8.15pm. Tickets: $42. Bookings: (02) 9356 3848. Until September 9.
