Title: Blasted in Cleveland 2009
Post by: Iain Fisher on January 25, 2009, 08:50:45 PM
Blasted is on at the Bang and the Clatter Theatre in Cleveland to 8 Feb 2009.

The actors are Nick Koesters (Ian), Faye Hargate (Cate) and Allen Branstein (soldier).  The director is Sean McConaha.

Tony Brown in cleveland.com on 23 Jan 2009 says

"As brutal as the whole thing is, the really disturbing part is how funny it is, and tender, too.  Directed with zest by Bang and Clatter co-artistic director Sean McConaha, the production- only the second of "Blasted" in the United States-  isn't nearly under control enough to be fully effective, and many of the production values are on the cheap.  But as an expressionistic, existentialist exhibition of the darkest depths of humanity, it will haunt the lives of all who see it."
