New York City
A lavish hotel room, an apocalyptic war raging outside, Ian and his young lover Cate struggle to reconstruct the fragments of a romantic connection they once shared. An intruder tests Ian’s limits by exposing him to the torturous reality of wartime terror. Kane’s controversial play ruptures preconceptions and pushes the limits of theater beyond its confines, forcing us to face our own humanity and consider how a devastating world of brutality can be caused by a mere idea, a moment of anger.
Hailed as one of the most provocative and influential British playwrights of her generation, in her world-famous drama Blasted, Sarah Kane pushes audience boundaries with her depiction of rape, torture and violence in wartime.
