Thanks for the quick reply, Iain. I’m actually tripping up on several of the abbreviations as it turns out. Another is “The.” which is clearly an abbreviation and not the actual word.

Here’s where they each appear. I could actually use a hand with most of them if you’re able to help.

On the 4.48 guide on this wonderful cite, there are various abbreviated references to possible sources Kane drew upon. I’m able to follow most/all of them but the abbreviation “Les” or “Les” comes up repeatedly and has me stumped. Can anyone shed any light on that one?

Wow, that's my last chance.

It's so hard to find something about that piece from 1997.
Please help me.
Anything you got.
I would be grateful.

Sarah Kane discussion / Blasted in Canada
« Last post by Iain Fisher on September 19, 2021, 12:15:06 AM »
Post Productions present Blasted in Windsor, Canada.  The dates are 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15 & 16, Oct 2021.

"this brilliant, intense, brutally beautiful, and subtle play - one of the most controversial and influential scripts of the 20th century - for Windsor-Essex audiences. In BLASTED, Ian, a middle-aged journalist, arranges a rendezvous in an upscale Leeds hotel room with Cate, a young woman with whom Ian hopes to rekindle a relationship that ended several years before. Outside their room, war is coming with an unseen and unspecified enemy. Unseen, that is, until a soldier arrives and the hotel room, and out assumptions about what's going on, are blown to pieces".
