51 Reviews

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 never-before-published Channel 4 screenplay, Skin.

"Kane wrote simply and starkly about the world she saw around her…a mature and vividly theatrical response to the pain of living." Guardian

Review: Complete Plays

User Review  - Michelle Lynne Widmann - Goodreads

Sarah Kane is just so refreshing. I read this basically in an entire day because I couldn't put it down. Her writing is bizarre, blunt and wonderfully entertaining. I am completely in love with Sarah Kane and her ability to be flawless at everything I hold near and dear to me. Read full review

Review: Complete Plays

User Review  - Gregorio - Goodreads

Though the first few plays are violent to the point that it is absurd (and almost funny-- I kept laughing by the time I reached Cleansed), Crave and 4.48 Psychosis are the stand out of the collection. Beautiful and worth everyone's read. Read full review

About the author (2001)

Sarah Kane (1971 – 1999) was an English dramatist. She is best known for the extraordinary public controversy over Blasted, her first play which, like subsequent works from her, were shocking and defining moments in theater: explosive, theatrical, lyrical and laced with emotional power and bleak humor.
