"Crave is een zoektocht naar liefde – het onbereikbare van liefde, het ongrijpbare van liefde, het hunkeren naar liefde – in een aaneenschakeling van gedachten, een vloedgolf van indrukken en gevoelens uit het binnenste van de mens. In Crave spreken vier naamloze personages, twee mannen en twee vrouwen. Het heeft geen werkelijke plot, geen tijdsverloop, geen plaatsaanduiding en geen werkelijke dialoog. Dit maakt het stuk chaotisch, welhaast surrealistisch: een niemandsland tussen leven en dood. Ieder personage vertelt zijn of haar eigen verhaal over liefde. A kijkt met veel weemoed terug naar de vrouw die hij heeft liefgehad; B is op zoek naar een vrouw die hem lief wil hebben; M vreest dat niemand haar ooit nog lief zal hebben; en C worstelt met haar liefde voor zichzelf."

Tangram Theatre Company and Jana Manekshaw present 4.48 Psychosis from 21 Feb to 11 Mar 2006.  The actors are Efi Dementi, Emily Randall, Géhane Strehler, Pola Anton, Rebecca Pownall, Tessa Nicholson, Tracey-Anne Liles.  The director is Daniel Goldman, the producer is Jana Manekshaw, the production stage manager Kirsten Turner, lighting by Lawrence Stromski, design Margaret Krawecka and sound Adan Doran.

"A dynamic new chorus production of Sarah Kane’s last play... 4.48 Psychosis is Sarah Kane's brutal and poetic exploration of a mind preparing to shut itself down. Spiked with gallows humour, Sarah Kane's fifth and final play charts the journey of mind and body; from darkness into light, from pain into love, from life into death."

Benjamin Davis in Time Out (8-15 Mar 2006) says "A chorus of seven women chime with Kane's beloved (Greek) themes (love, death, sacrifice)... Director Daniel Goldman has done a fine job of creating an uncomfortable, essential experience".
