4.48am is when the will to live is at its lowest ebb.
In this uncompromising autobiographical approach to Kane’s elusive and elliptical prose poem, the central character is a woman in the throes of a terrifying psychological ordeal. Throughout the play she confronts a series of figures who try to reason with her: a close friend, a male doctor, another patient, a female lover; until she ends up attacking her own psyche.
Through anger, grief and despair we witness an intense performance in this heroic struggle for life.
