Two productions of 4.48 Psychosis at the Edinburgh Festival
DEM Productions present 4.48 Psychosis at the C venues - C nova in Edinburgh from 14- 26 Aug 2013.
"Intimate new staging of Sarah Kane's poetic final masterpiece. A highly naturalistic piece of work, this production blurs and breaks down the barrier between her internal and external worlds, playing with what is unspoken and spoken. Dialogue swaps between normal, mundane, everyday conversation, to the highly lyrical language of Kane's writing. The cast of five highly talented and diverse actors engage with their experiences to create a highly personal product".
"Sarah Kane's poetic masterpiece that sparked controversy and debate. Performed intimately, using physicality alongside the dialogue to question clinical depression and provide insight into the fragility of the human mind. Hard-hitting but beautiful."

Sugar Kane in Edinburgh and York
Naloxone Theatre Ensemble present a play by Tom Wilson about Sarah Kane, Sugar Kane. It is part of the Edinburgh Festival at SpaceCabaret @ 54 from 9- 17 Aug 2013.
"This is a futuristic galvanized multi-purpose SK. In this world Sarah has a chance to speak her mind and answer back what was levelled at her. A controversial dead dyke adamant about putting the record straight. Imagine a vitriolic poltergeist, split into four parts, five if you count the voice of her alter ego. This is Waiting for Godot meets 4.48 via MUFC agro. This is the Sarah Kane I wish I could believe existed. In losing Sarah we also lost the most exciting, explosively creative dramatist, certainly since Joan Littlewood! God bless you Sugar Kane."
"Tom Wilson, from Acomb, became friends with provocative playwright Sarah Kane after meeting her at the Edinburgh festival just months before her suicide in 1999 and was inspired to pen his own play in tribute to her.
Blasted was branded “a disgusting feast of filth” by critics, before being revered after her death at age 28. And Tom expects the premier of semi-biographical Sugar Kane to be no less controversial than she was.
