4.48 Psychosis is the journey through a woman’s mind as she struggles with sanity and her will to live. It is a personal portrayal of the need for love and the destructive nature of her mental illness. It explores the lines that define reality and what happens when they become blurred or non-existent. We meet a lover, a doctor and the voices that inspire reason and conjure delusion. This is the final work by one of England’s most influential contemporary dramatists.
