The Play Podcast - 042 - Blasted by Sarah Kane

Host: Douglas Schatz
Guest: Graham Saunders

The Play Podcast is a podcast dedicated to exploring the greatest new and classic plays. In each episode we choose a single play to talk about in depth with our expert guest. We discuss the play’s origins, its themes, characters, structure and impact. For us the play is the thing.

Sarah Kane’s explosive play Blasted outraged critics on its debut in 1995 with its disturbing depictions of sex and violence. It’s since become a landmark in modern drama for its innovative form and raw honesty. Professor Graham Saunders helps us explore this profoundly challenging play.
