Welcome, GuestMy Order
A middle-aged man and younger woman meet at a hotel room. As public and private violations collide, their world shatters around them. Acknowledged as the most provocative and influential British playwright of her generation, Sarah Kane weaves an unforgettable story of destruction, chaos, and, ultimately, redemption and love.
When Blasted debuted in 1995, the production sparked outrage. Sarah Kane created characters living in a state of siege with a war mentality stripping away their humanity layer by layer. Ben Brantley of the NY Times writes: “For all their degradation and cruelty, her characters are complex, ambivalent and specifically, identifiably human. In this sense, Blasted is an extraordinary act of empathy, an imagining of how people could reach the point where they behave like participants in war crimes. Ms. Kane’s chilling contention is that it’s not such a stretch for any of us."
CONTENT ADVISORYBlasted is 90 minutes long with no intermission and heavy use of graphic language, sexual violence, and disturbing imagery.
