4:48 Psychosis was written throughout the autumn and winter of 1998-99 as Sarah Kane battled with one of her recurrent bouts of depression. On February 20, 1999, aged 28, the playwright committed suicide. On the page, the piece looks like a poem about Kane's internal struggles. It could be a journey through one or several peoples minds. The play highlights Sarah's struggle with depression. Through her interactions with the Doctor and Counsellor, we see how she battles with her demons.
Sarah — Emma Rafferty
Doctor — Michael Grant
