Madame de Sade: Todd Theatre

cover for the play Madame de Sade

Yukio Mishima—celebrated and controversial; a poet, novelist, film director, and right-wing nationalist who committed ritual suicide after a failed coup attempt—was one of Japan's most important post-war artists (and thrice nominated for a Nobel Prize). His play, Madame de Sade, examines the Marquis de Sade—the man, his proclivities, and the myth he became—through the eyes of his wife, her family, and her society. This play marked the International Theater Program's last performance for the spring semester.
