CRAVE by Sarah Kane

directed by adam coy

NOVEMBER 15th-18th | THE BLACK BOX @ ACCESS THEATER 

Four voices spring from a void, longing for freedom in a world full of familiar addictions and anxieties. Sarah Kane's language is her legacy — her splintered, haunting poetry burst onto the British stage in the 1990s. CRAVE was Kane’s fourth play, following BLASTED, PHAEDRA’S LOVE, and CLEANSED, all pieces which notably launched the art form into the twenty-first century. Egg & Spoon is thrilled to tackle such a potent and provocative work, the perfect addition to our second year of theatre making.

The play runs about 45 minutes, without an intermission.

WHY CRAVE?

“Kane’s work is relentless in its attacks on the failure of the human condition but remains guided by the hope of change. Her language is at times gruesome—and uses childhood trauma, toxic love, and addiction to explore the breakdown of the mind. Egg & Spoon’s production of CRAVE will focus on love and anxiety in an attempt to break the stigmas around addiction and mental illness.” — Adam Coy
