9780719059551: 'Love Me Or Kill Me': Sarah Kane and the Theatre of Extremes

Love Me or Kill Me is the first study of Sarah Kane, the most significant British dramatist in post-war theater. It covers all of Kane's major plays and productions, contains hitherto unpublished material and reviews, and looks at her continuing influence after her tragic early death. Locating the main dramatic sources and features of her work as well as centralizing her place within the 'new wave' of emergent British dramatists in the 1990's, Graham Saunders provides an introduction for those familiar and unfamiliar with her work.

About the Author:

Graham Saunders is Lecturer in Theater Studies at the University of the West of England.


'This is a pioneering book that will have a marked influence of all subsequent Sarah Kane studies. Graham Saunders has spoken to directors, actors and others who worked with her and knew her intimately. You can hear the rustle of draft scripts, feet in rehearsal rooms, the coffee cups of students discussing late into the night. It is astonishing to read such intimate accounts of a woman who became a public icon in her short life... This is not a sycophantic book, its judgements are balanced - and that makes us realise all the more what we have lost. It was one little death, but theatre will need a crowd of brilliant writers to take her place - if even then.' Edward Bond
