This review is from: Blasted (Modern Plays) (Paperback)
This play is not for the faint hearted readers as some students have found. However, despite the horrific surface of these powerful disturbing images, there is a deeper meaning and a beautful message...love... and yes some would argue this. This play caused a disturbing affect on reviewers, many whom were disgusted. Though dramatist and serious theatre critics like Edward Bond find this refreshingly welcoming to british theatre. The language is violently poetic, a radical difference in theatrical conventions.
Read Kane's words beyond the superficial surface and you will find a whole new level of intellectual stimulation that you thought not possible. She was trying to make a point, are you too ignorant to find what that point is?
