A one man black comedy extravaganza about the perverted philosophical powerhouse, the Marquis de Sade!

This show throws open the cell doors of the darkest mind in history. Imprisoned for a decade without visitors, the Marquis reveals how he came to be locked up, shares the gritty details of his personal life, and teaches everyone about the joys of anarchy and complete sexual liberty.

Complete with unbelievable audience demonstrations and improvisation, audiences don’t watch Sade, they meet and speak with him . . . no other performer has ever embodied the Divine Marquis quite like this.

A one man black comedy by Alexander Sparrow.

“animated and full of energy . . . strangely entertaining”
Dominion Post

“A brave work: clever, layered, sneaks up on you”

“the show was lots of fun, and the audience participation hilarious”

“It’s theatre but with a dark comedic twist”
