Have to agree with previous posts that discussion was far too short, but interestng anyway. Applaud company who shamelessly advertised their production of Crave prior to discussion getting started; will be interested in what they do with the text. Just to announce myslf: am currently a student at Warwick University who will be writing a dissertation on Sarah Kane's plays in performance, focusing on the subject of 'the divided self' in all works. Shameless publicity ploy: I will also be playing the part of 'B' in a production of Crave that is performing at the Edinburgh Festival from 1st-25th August @ the Underbelly ( - go check it out, esp. in June when details will be updated). Know my words but rehearsals will not be commencing until 20th June, so any sugestions/thoughts on what people might have thought was missing from previous productions they've seen would be interesting. Having seen the highly faited student production at the National Student Drama Festival, my ownly critcism was that they interpreted the relationsips between B/M, A/C so literally as to negate the possibility that it is four voices in one mind. The whole team (by Failbetter productions by the way) is determined to do justice to Kane's text, so the more ideas we accumulate the better. Am ever conscious of B's opening line "f*ck this up andI'll haunt you for the rest of your f*ckinglife". Thoughts welcome. Additionaly, would like to offer anyone whose participated in this 'forum' discounted tickets for our performances. Thanks for you time, Chris x

I have to agree totally. When I first became aware of the discussion on this web site I debated whether to go or not, not knowing quite what to expect of it. I am so glad that I went it was a stimulating discussion. Regrettably just as the audience questions were starting to flow and the replies were becoming really informative, the time ran out. For me it needed to be much longer.

Hey All, What a lovely occasion last night was. It was very special to be able to sit and listen to Graham, James MacDonald, Alex Sierz and Mel Kenyon talking about Sarah as a person and about her work. I thought the whole discussion was thoughtful and thought-provoking, and the love and loyalty the four panelists obviously felt towards Sarah, her work and her memory was quite moving. I just wish we could have been able to hold the formal discussion a little longer - it seemed too short at 45 minutes. Any one else? Thoughts?

The good news is that I know of at least 11 people from the site who are going.

See you there.

I can't make it either, and all of us involved in our production of Crave would have, no doubt, found it fascinating. It will in fact be our first night on the 15th. We are running from Wednesday to Friday 17th at Sussex University.

You and me both, sister - I've got work that evening.

So if someone who is going can please post what happens on here, many thanks - that'd be great.

Can I just thank the discussion board for all the kind words and comments I have received about the book. I look forward to meeting some of you at the Royal Court on the 15th of this month. It promises to be a a stimulating discussion on Sarah work, and comments from the audience will play a big part of the panel discussion. And of course drinks in the bar afterwards!
