Blasted  (A Malthouse Theatre Production, Melbourne, Australia)

A gin-swigging journalist and his young lover check into an anonymous hotel room. When a soldier and a war zone explode through the bathroom window, things become barbaric.

This was the debut script of in-your-face playwright prodigy Sarah Kane. Her prescient dissection of our response to violence was heralded as ‘depraved’ by some, ‘tender’ by others. So ignited the polarising firestorm of Kane’s blazing career.

Starring David Woods (Ganesh Versus the Third Reich), Eloise Mignon (The Wild Duck), Fayssal Bazzi (The Government Inspector) and Directed by Anne-Louise Sarks (The Testament of Mary) Blasted will give Malthouse Theatre audiences the chance to experience the power and controversy of Sarah Kane, and the play that shook the world.
