Blasted brought Sarah Kane to the theatre pages of the broadsheets, the front pages of the tabloids, and to the notice of the nation. Covers all Kane's major plays and productions, contains hitherto unpublished material and reviews, and looks at her continuing influence after her tragic early death. 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. This book is the first study of the most significant British dramatist in post-war theatre and includes unpublished interview material with Sarah Kane herself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'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
