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.
Adam Coy is a director and theatre artist originally from San Antonio Texas, based in New York City. He holds a BFA in Acting from Syracuse University, where he received the Josephine Abady Award for Excellence in Directing. Coy is a member of the SDCF 2018-19 observership class, a founding member of the Egg & Spoon Theatre Collective, is a proud member of the Flea Theaters acting company the Bats, and makes up 1/3 of the Coy brother's production company Los Tres Hermanos.

“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
