We're partnering with Chichester Festival Theatre to share with you their production of Crave. Opening Night will be live-streamed on Tue 18 May and the performance will then be made available on-demand from Wed 19 - Sat 29 May 2021.
In a damaged world, four characters search for the light. This heart-rending, funny, kind and cruel meditation on the meaning of love resonated with audiences looking to reconnect after the loneliness and seclusion inflicted by a global pandemic.
A chance for audiences at home to experience a specifically made film of the production that defied lockdown. Sarah Kane's Crave was live-streamed to thousands in 50 countries around the globe as a cast of four performed in an empty auditorium. This film is a new edit of the live stream, with remastered sound and incorporating new footage.
Sarah Kane is considered to be one of the most influential playwrights of the 20th century. She came to prominence in 1995 with her seminal first play, Blasted. Over her short career, she wrote five plays and a film. Crave premiered in August 1998 at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh. Today, her plays are performed around the world.
Cast includes: Erin Doherty, Alfred Enoch, Wendy Kweh and Jonathan Slinger
"A rending, agonising achievement. This is theatre that leaves its mark - art from the edge of endurance"
"What's astonishing, what holds and grips is the power of the writing. All of this is beautifully managed in Craig's production"
"A magnetic, edge-of-the-seat tension"
"I got up out of my broken desk chair and I applauded"
