Review On 4.48 PSYCHOSIS by Sarah Kane


Stephen Fife

Writer, Non-Registered Critics


...it is Dylan Jones who makes this such a memorable event. She so fully embodies Sarah Kane’s agony (and occasional ecstasy) that we cannot take our eyes off her, cannot get her cries out of our mind long after the stage lights have dimmed. With her pale white skin and tangles of blazing red hair, she is like a priestess of pain, a Cassandra for our troubled times... But the hour that we spend in her company also feels like theatrical heaven, as she strips away layer after layer of her social self until we get down to what Shakespeare called “the thing itself” — her naked spirit. - RECOMMENDED
