I had no idea Kane was popular in the far East. That's amazing.

Kane inspired "When The Dark Hits Me" in Malaysia

A Kane inspired play in Malaysia

"When The Dark Hits Me is inspired by the late British contemporary playwright Sarah Kane’s work 4.48 Psychosis. There is no specific plot in this play, which is a type of stream of consciousness drama. The main story is about a mental illness patient’s inner struggle. He is surrounded by medical staff all day long. In the process, he has not been really understood. This is his sincere confession to the world, conveying his love to people in an extremely cruel way."

The performances are in the repurposed warehouse space of KongsiKL.  It is a graduation production by New Era University College’s Department of Drama & Visuals. Show is in Mandarin with English surtitles.
