I'm rereading Cleansed over and over now, and I still love Crave best (which means I'm rereading it over and over too), and I don't really find those two that different.

Acctually I think there are lots of motives connecting all the Sarah Kane's plays. Give me any of two titles and a little of time, and I'll find you what connects them.

It's maybe a little paranoic, the way I think of those texts, but I'm finding motives like sunflowers and daffodils (Crave and Cleansed), and stuff like that. I also pay attention to motives from outside Kane's works...

Further to the above, some of the speeches from 4.48 Psychosis - "I will hang myself to the sound of my lover's breathing", "I dream of a woman...", "to be loved...", perhaps even a countdown from 100, and possibly the concluding "watch me vanish" - would fit quite comfortably into Crave.

However, I do prefer to leave the plays as they stand.

I agree with you that all the plays are best left as they are.

All the plays have a very different ethos from each other. I just thought that IF you were going to pair two of them together, Crave and 4.48 would make a more natural match than any other pairing.

I don't know, I have always thought that the whole tone of '4:49' was very differnt to 'Crave'. They do and did work well on the same bill but I don't think there is that much that you could traspose from one to the other. Though there isn't that much from 'Cleansed' That you could put into 'Crave'. Though I guess I'm more in the Beckett tradition that the authors work should be presented as the author intended.

I would have thought Crave with 4.48 Psychosis would be a more logical amalgamation. What do others think?

In Poland there's Cleansed with Crave incorporated ;)))) Maybe it's just specifics of the region?

In Lithuania next month they're performing a version of Crave with some of Cleansed incorporated - interesting concept...
