Complete Plays

by: Sarah Kane

Publisher: Bloomsbury Press (2000)


Staff Pick by comrade: rats

Kane's plays become increasingly abstract and cathartic, always pressing the boundaries of the stage and emotional palatability. Her plays are incredibly personal and visceral, even painful to read. Presenting the sensation of thought inside suffering and confusion. Deeply affecting and impossible to forget once you've read her work.
