4.48 Psychosis Opens on July 20!

Anton’s Well Theater Company is proud to present a rare local production of 4.48 Psychosis, Sarah Kane’s searing examination of depression.

Our production features actors Anastasia Barron, Jody Christian, and Adrian Deane. The creative crew is the same one that produced last year’s “astonishing” Tender Napalm: Director Robert Estes, Assistant Director/Producer Wm. Diedrick Razo, Choreographer Bridgette Loriaux, Music Composer Greg Zema, and Lighting Designer Nathan Bogner.

The New York Times finds that 4.48 Psychosis is “breathtakingly beautiful” and that Sarah Kane’s language “creates the most persuasive and authentic portrait of what it means to be terminally depressed…ever encountered in a theater.”

4.48 Psychosis opens on Friday, July 20. The show runs Fridays and Saturdays, 8PM, Sundays 7PM from July 20 to August 5 (with one Thursday performance on August 2) at the Temescal Arts Center, 511 48th Street, Oakland. Tickets are $17-$20.


We also hope that you might consider financially supporting Anton’s Well. Please know that any donation you make will have a powerful impact for our company. We do not have high overheard (wait, we don’t have any overhead!).

All of your donation will go to the direct costs of producing our plays in 2018, which means your donation will go to good stipends for our actors and designers, royalties to the playwrights, and, yes, rent to the landlords!

In addition to to presenting the emotionally gripping 4.48 Psychosis by Sarah Kane, in September we will present dirty butterfly by debbie tucker green, which will be the Bay Area Premiere for one of England’s most challenging contemporary playwrights.

For all of this to happen, we need you!
