Blasted Presented by Post Productions
October 14 @ 8:00 pm - October 16 @ 10:00 pm
Post Productions presents Sarah Kane’s Blasted, one of the most controversial and influential scripts of the 20th century, at The Shadowbox Theatre on October 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, & 16, 2021.
This brilliant, intense, brutally beautiful, and subtle play will thrill Windsor-Essex audiences. In BLASTED, Ian, a middle-aged journalist, arranges a rendezvous in an upscale Leeds hotel room with Cate, a young woman with whom Ian hopes to rekindle a relationship that ended several years before. Outside their room, war is coming with an unseen and unspecified enemy. Unseen, that is, until a soldier arrives and the hotel room, and out assumptions about what’s going on, are blown to pieces.
Although frequently produced in continental Europe, BLASTED is rarely staged in the English-speaking world. Post Productions is one of only four theatre companies to bring it to Canada. See it while you can; you may never get another chance.
WARNING: This play is not suitable for children. It contains mature themes, offensive language, nudity, and acts of physical, sexual, and psychological violence.
