Sarah Kane: Complete Play. Blasted immediately established her as an important voice in modern playwriting.

Sarah Kane, David Greig. When Blasted was first produced at the Royal Court in 1995 it was hailed jointly as a masterpiece and a 'disgusting piece of filth' (Daily Mail). Subsequently that play, and the others that followed, have been produced all over the world. This anthology includes Kane's ed Channel 4 screenplay, Skin a mature and vividly theatrical response to the pain of living.

I read Sarah Kane's play . 8 Psychosis some years back when I was extremely depressed and it struck me as the baldest, most honest & terrifying representation of the condition I'd ever encountered. Knowing that the play-which is essentially a suicide's monologue-was the last Kane wrote before her own suicide seemed to solidify its veracity in my mind: it is a missive from hell. All 5 of Kane's plays are compiled in this gut-punch of a collection. Reading them back-to-back I am glad to have never seen a live performance-I simply cannot imagine the fortitude it would.

A great way to thrust yourself into the world of 'In-Yer-Face-Theatre'. Whenever I read one of her plays, I find myself almost forced to read it to the very end as if pausing the pain, even for a day, could cause me even more trauma. Once finished, I usually cry or sit in awe of what I've just experienced. I then completely divorce myself from the crude acts that took place for months at a time merely to return to the same story that I allowed myself to forget in order to continue functioning. And the cycle begins again. I have read that Mark Ravenhill is also in Kane's ranks if you find yourself in need for more from this genres.

Sarah Kane's collected plays represent an underestimated force in theater. Much like the work of Elfriede Jelinek or Ntozake Shange, Kane takes a private pain (losing oneself in another or testing the limits of proclaimed love) and creates a verbal landscape that the audience must inhabit, either by force of shock or noble acceptance of empathy. In either case, her plays must be reckoned with upon finishing. I think perhaps the most intriguing and powerful to me was 4.48 Psychosis, her final and posthumously performed play. There are no defined characters because who cannot claim a piece within the multitude of confessions that the play really unfolds as. Brutally honest and intentionally confrontational, this play, above the others, embodies the last possible moments of hope in anyone's life. Kane's characters rarely make the choice to latch on to these moments, but they are there and cannot be ignored.

Sarah Kane's plays are crass, bleak, bland, not lyrical and certainly not beautiful, neither philosophical nor reflective. She's a reactionary. She's visceral. She's base in the truest sense, like blood, or a seizure, not quite an orgasm. There's no ecstasy in her world.

You might not respect her...and maybe you shouldn't. Maybe she doesn't want you to.

But read her, anyway. If only to find fault with her attempts. Pick her apart.

She's nothing if not an engaging read.

In fact, she may in fact be--in the nihilist sense of the word--nothing.

...Read her anyway.

A wonderful collection of thought provoking works. It amazes me that there is so many in the theatre who do not know this woman's work. Powerful, powerful stuff.

In great condition, I love her writing.
Sarah Kane is messed up and dark, but I love her
The book itself was not bent, no writing inside it, and even though it was used, it was in good condition
  • Vivados
Great, twisted plays
  • hardy
This is one of the most prolific books by a young writer I've ever read. It's a must-read, must-gift, must-have.
Excellent!
