Blasted brought Sarah Kane to the theatre pages of the broadsheets, the front pages of the tabloids, and to the notice of the nation. Love me or kill me is the first study of the most significant British dramatist in post-war theatre. It covers all Kane's major plays and productions, contains hitherto unpublished material and reviews, and looks at her continuing influence after her tragic early death.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 centralising her place within the 'new wave' of emergent British dramatists in the 1990s, Graham Saunders provides an introduction for those familiar and unfamiliar with her work. A chapter-by-chapter analysis looks at each play in detail and the appendices carry transcripts of interviews with colleagues and leading theatre practitioners involved with her productions. Using these sources as well as unpublished interview material with Sarah Kane herself, Graham Saunders presents the most complete study of this foremost British writer.

Product Description:

From the controversy in 1995 that heralded Blasted, to her death in February 1999, Sarah Kane built a reputation as an established playwright of international stature. This is the first volume of collected essays by some of the leading scholars in their field, providing a comprehensive approach to the body of work she produced in this brief period. Essays included cover the political, literary and theatrical identities that have exerted influence on Kane s work, as well as discussing and assessing her innovative theatrical experiments and the performative issues that arise from within the plays. Sarah Kane in context examines one of the most controversial and influential dramatists who emerged during the In-Yer Face generation of British dramatists in the 1990s and provides an essential guide to Kane for students and scholars alike.
