Experimental Brazilian theater company Os Satyros and Theatre Asylum present this wicked stage adaptation. Based on the Marquis de Sade’s 1795 erotic novel La Philosophie dans le boudoir, this production steers close to the original work with frontal nudity, sex and blasphemy. Set in a bedroom, two decadent libertines teach a virgin their philosophical system and introduce her to the pleasures of the flesh. When the young girl’s conservative mother attempts to rescue her from corruption, the deviants turn on her. First performed in 1990, Os Satyros’ production has been met with praise and censorship around the world.
This show contains frontal nudity, sex, scatology and blasphemy. Sade’s text is not palatable. Not recommended for hypersensitive individuals.
