Ansia (Crave) in Argentina
"El gran tema es la soledad, una soledad absoluta, terrible,
devastadora, de la cual es imposible salir. Sentimiento de caos, bronca e

propias, que hablan de las cosas que más tememos.

Blasted in Ontario, Canada
The director is Brendan Healy and the actors are David Ferry, Michelle Monteith and Dylan Smith. Set and Costume Design Julie Fox, Lighting Design Kimberly Purtell, Music and Sound Design Richard Feren and Stage Manager Merissa Tordjman.
"Blasted has never before been produced in English Canada. Artistic Director Brendan Healy states: 'I am thrilled to be opening my first season with the Canadian premiere of this modern classic. Kane was motivated by a ferocious desire to challenge our culture’s complacency and desensitization. Her plays provocatively defy conventional theatrical form. In my opinion, the fearlessness of her rebellion against the status quo and the depth of her compassion for humanity embody the spirit behind Buddies in Bad Times Theatre. Our production of Blasted is a bold reassertion of Buddies’ relevance as an artistic and political force in our city.'"

"4.48 Psychosis is a black snowflake that cannot melt. The poetic and searing story of a young woman's journey to suicide, the script has no stage directions, no set description, not even a cast list or assigned roles. Each production is compelled into uniqueness; the challenge is to make that uniqueness seem inevitable."
