“Sade and Sisters,” a full-length play on the life of the Divine Marquis, serves up a spicy tale based on the life of the notorious French philosoper. In truth, Sade, whose name inspired the term “sadism,” was imprisoned in pre-revolutionary France as much for his atheism as for his cruelty. Modern historians and philosophers have been re-appraising Sade’s wicked reputation, asserting his role as a philosopher whose worldly views were ahead of his time with regard to assertion of the self and the will to power.
Author Clair LaVaye explores the complex relationship of Sade with his wife and her younger sister. Both women shared his bed; each had a role to play in his sexual obsessions. Perhaps these two women inspired his two greatest novels, "Justine" and "Juliette.” The 210-page play, illustrated with erotic images created in the 3D world of Second Life, provides food for thought. A warning from the author: the images are erotic, but the philosophy is poisonous, so beware, innocent eyes, lest you fall into damnation!!
Following in the tradition of such plays as Peter Weiss’s “Marat/Sade” and Mishima’s “Madame de Sade,” "Sade and Sisters" explores the interior of Sade's heart and the hearts of those he loved.
Illustrated play length: 209 pages.
