ABOUT:
Sarah Kane is a well-known British playwright whose plays include 4:48 Psychosis and Blasted. Her plays explore the relationship between bystanders, perpetrators, and victims in society and use intense poetic language and extreme stage action to explore those themes. Her play Phaedra’s Love is a modern adaptation of Seneca’s Phaedra, focusing on Phaedra’s stepson, Hippolytus. Unlike in the classical drama, the violent action happens on stage instead of off.
NOTE: It is highly recommended that you read the play before auditioning. For more information, please email leda@ledahoffmann.com
