Simon, my sincerest apologies. I have tried to enter into discussions with the copyright owners and found them unwilling to explain the situation. If you wish to contact me, then post another message and I will send you my address. I assure you that I meant absolutely no insult to you or Sarah but am a huge admirer of her work and would not, out of respect for her and her work, go against her intended wishes. I posted this message in an attempt to find out the details and did not intend to offend. Thank you for replying so promptly, it is good to know that in visiting this site you are aware of how much of an impact her work has made.

It can't be contested because it's true. I should know, I own the copyright in all the plays, including audiovisual rights.

I intend to write to you separately explaining this more fully, but I'm posting this here so nobody is in any doubt: Sarah didn't want it, and as long as I'm in control it will never happen.

I am currently in discussion with agents over copyright for a non-public production of Crave for a dissertation thesis showing how the poetry of Crave's work should encourage more work like this for the medium of radio theatre. I use the term 'discussion' very lightly as, at present, I am being stopped point-blank at entering into discussions over this plan as apparently Kane refused the rights for her work to be produced in any medium other than theatre. If anyone knows of any ways in which this information can be contested or at least brought to discussion I would really appreciate the reply. Many thanks.

Hi Aleksander,

There arenĀ“t any videos of her plays available commercially IĀ“m afraid. There is a television film Skin but there are currently no plans to re-broadcast it.

Two film companies have contacted me asking for information about copyrights etc, so maybe in the future.

I have also written to the BBC suggesting they do Crave as a radio play. I think Crave would transfer very well to this medium.

If anyone has a video of a student performance of workshop of Cleansed IĀ“m sure they will contact you.

Good luck

First I would like to send greetings to all of you, especially to Ian for this site and a chance to gather most relevant articles on Sarah Kane, on her life and work. I am a third year student in theatre directing from Macedonia and I`ve learned about Sarah this year. I hope that we will have many discussions on this site about her and her work. I would like to ask everyone of you who can help me with finding a video tape from Sarah`s texts, preferably CLEANSED. I live in Macedonia and it`s very difficult to find and impossible to see Kane`s performances from UK, Germany or The Netherlands or USA. If anyone knows a way to help me, please post a reply. Hope to hear you soon.
