Blasted by Sarah Kane

Directed by Paul Angelo

February 12-March 19, 2016


Defunkt returns to the brutal and beautiful world of Sarah Kane in this Portland premiere. 20 years ago, Sarah Kane’s debut play set the modern theater on its ear: her work was championed by some and condemned by others for its violence and fearless presentation of the darkest facets of human nature.  This haunting, and eerily prescient play has lost none of its ability to stir and move us: as The Guardian wrote of a recent revival:  “Twenty years ago, many said that Kane overplayed the scenario of violence…recent history has taught us that we were wrong to think that, or that distant wars had nothing to do with us and we are safe.”
