Director Kita Rokva staged Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis at Rustaveli Theatre, creating a cozy mood on the stage. With only a couple of rows created in a circle, the audience could feel the tension of a man who tries to find himself, but cannot stop thinking of death.

Rokva said it does not matter who is performing this play– the problems of men and women do not much differ. He said that because the original idea is “too heavy”, his team tried to bring the plot closer to the hearts of each and every person who attends the play and make it more understandable.

Actor Beso Zanguri thinks a lot of people, including him, may be still in the process of “searching themselves” in life. He said that people like his character need care and attention. “Even if it’s just one person helping a mentally ill person, I would consider it a great success,” he told The Messenger.
