Crave

2017 V36

Pembroke Players

‘Why do you drink so much?’ ‘The fags aren’t killing me fast enough.’ Sat together by chance, four unnamed strangers unearth their darkest moments. In this post-truth world, Kane’s brutal and unadulterated tragedy is defiantly honest. One of Sarah Kane’s final works, Crave returns to the festival where it premiered in 1998. Brought to you by a creative team previously described as ‘visionary’ (Varsity) and behind many ‘must-see’ (Cambridge Student) productions in Cambridge, this retelling of Sarah Kane’s masterpiece is unmissable. ‘I’m looking for a time and place free of things that crawl, fly or sting.’
