Synopsis


Sarah Kane's first full-length play, Blasted is a brutal vision of a war-torn society viewed through an intimate and heightened series of violent acts, which shocked critics on its premiere in 1995.


Gaining iconic status as much for the media controversy that followed as for its forceful and radical exploration of violence, Blasted has since been re-evaluated and re-examined in the light of continuing international atrocities and is now widely regarded as a landmark piece of twentieth century theatre - uncompromising yet prescient.
