In July 2017, we presented Sarah Kane's 4:48 Psychosis at Barons Court Theatre. The production enjoyed a sell-out run and achieved widespread appreciation from its audiences. We also attracted a 5 star review, which can be viewed below.


4:48 Psychosis is a challenging piece which explores the effects of clinical depression on the individual. It is a disorder from which Kane herself suffered. The play is an excruciating examination of the condition, perhaps giving the audience a unique insight into Kane’s personal struggles with the illness. Discussion of suicide is a recurring theme as is the desires of the depressed mind, the effects and effectiveness of taking medication to treat depression, self-harm, isolation, dependency, relationships and love.


Almost 20 years after the play was written, our aim was to present a thought provoking and timely revival – a re-examination of the struggles still facing many people in our society.

We were proud to support PAPYRUS, a fantastic charity dedicated to saving lives by helping to prevent suicide in young people, by donating proceeds from programme sales to the cause. More information about PAPYRUS can be found on their website at:
