Cruelty and Desire

A new book Cruelty and Desire in the Modern Theater: Artonin Artaud, Sarah Kane, and Samuel Beckett by Laurens De Vos.  "Departing from a refreshing look at the ideas of Artonin Artaud, this book provides a thorough analysis of how both Sarah Kane and Samuel Beckett are indebted to his legacy.

4.48 Psychosis in New York, USA

Phaedras Love - click for link

Magic Futurebox present 4.48 Psychosis from 10- 27 May 2012.  It is directed by James Rutherford, featuring Emily Gleeson and Lizzie Vieh and with design by Oona Curley, costume design by Sarah Thea Swafford and the production stage manager is Alex Lubensky.

"A career of horrible-gentle and violent-funny work comes to a close with Sarah Kane's magnum opus, written on the eve of her tragic suicide. In it she tells the inner drama of a mind at the point of combustion. In her hospital room she becomes patient, disease and doctor. She is the Victim of unending cruelties, and her pain knows no limit. She is the Perpetrator of every violence and delivers each blow with a smile. She is the Bystander to her own suffering, deaf to her own shrill screams. At the edge of her death, Sarah Kane teaches us what it means to be alive."
