Phaedra's Love is a majestic macabre comedy, a re-working of the Greek tragedy of Phaedra, yet again with serious points to make about obsessive love, extreme boredom and hypocrisy. Sarah's work will live on for centuries, both through performances of her own plays and through the new writers influenced by her who are already emerging. Sarah Kane's work has been subjected to every manner of uncomprehending ignorance possible. What has been overlooked - and what this collection shows - is her handling of form, structure and Classical unities ("Blasted" is almost an exercise in symmetry).

Phaedra's Love is a play by British playwright Sarah Kane. It was first performed in 1996 at London's Gate Theatre, directed by the author. The play is a modern adaptation of Seneca's Phaedra. The play explores the brutal nature of love, social relations, nihilism and belief through the example of an affair between a queen and her stepson. It centres more on Hippolytus (the original focuses more on Phaedra), who is rendered lazy and cynical by his upbringing as the son of King Theseus.

Comments:
Insanity
A very different type of play. I got this to meet a requirement for a class I was taking and think it stands out as one of the weirdest stories I have read. But it did generate a lot of discussion.

They tell me that Sarah Kane made quite a stir in British theatre before her untimely suicide in 1999. Given the undeniable intensity of "Blasted," not to mention the in-your-face subject matter, it's not difficult to see why. I think Kane had at least some talent, but the modest technical skill she brings to this play is definitely overwhelmed by the unpleasantness of the material. Really, "Blasted" is just that old Theatre of the Absurd shtick--you know: "The world is a crazy, horrible place but it's all we have"--updated for somewhat more permissive 1990's audiences; no one familiar with the best plays of Beckett, Pinter, or Stoppard should be terribly impressed by it. The companion piece, "Phaedra's Love," is more of the same, only lacking the questionable merits of the first play. In fact, "Phaedra's Love" is flat-out awful, strongly suggesting that Kane had really very little to say. But that's often how it goes with would-be rebels in the arts.

Vital Beast
These, the first two plays by Sarah Kane, the most brilliantly original voice of 1990s theatre, are essential. Blasted captures the full horror of contemporary war and socks home scalpel-sharp observations about life, abuse of all kinds and extreme despair, yet finds some compassion amid it all. Phaedra's Love is a majestic macabre comedy, a re-working of the Greek tragedy of Phaedra, yet again with serious points to make about obsessive love, extreme boredom and hypocrisy.
Sarah's work will live on for centuries, both through performances of her own plays and through the new writers influenced by her who are already emerging.
I met Sarah twice, and she was a very lovely lady, so may you die horribly, Colorado, you scum.

Sarah Kane's work has been subjected to every manner of uncomprehending ignorance possible. What has been overlooked - and what this collection shows - is her handling of form, structure and Classical unities ("Blasted" is almost an exercise in symmetry). Ignore the vindictive, poorly spelled review from Colorado, try and ignore the appalling sentiment of the final line. Sarah Kane's work is outstanding. There is more of it than just these two plays, but not as much as there should have been

Auridora
Sarah Kane is one of the best young playwrights in the world. Her plays are shocking, perverse, and salacious. She renders cultural disillusion poetically. These plays are required reading for anyone who cares about the future of drama.
