Sarah Kane’s Crave to open at Perth’s State Theatre Centre this June

WA Youth Theatre Company has revealed they will be presenting Sarah Kane‘s Crave, a stunning and poetic piece of literature revolving around need, violence and doubt. Originally debuted in 1988, the play takes place in an abstract world, focusing on four characters that are only identified as C, M, B and A.

The production gives no specific details of a setting or location, but rather, highlights the  bold, brave and honest characters and their stories. Furthermore, Crave provides the opportunity for audiences to reflect on mental illness, aiming to bring about a discussion that embraces the complexities of all mental illnesses.

Directed by the WA Youth Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Renato Fabretti, Crave will be running throughout June at Perth’s State Theatre Centre. A preview will be held on Thursday June 2, with the official opening night taking place on Friday June 3. There will be further shows on Saturday June 4 and Tuesday June 7 – Saturday June 11. Adult tickets start from $25, with tickets for all shows on sale now.
