Sarah Kane’s poetic yet disturbing cry for help is not a simple play to produce—and not only because of the subject matter graphically chronicling her struggle with her own debilitating depression and drug dependency, but also because it is a journal of a life spent in painful self-induced isolation. Visionary director Matthew McCray has chosen to set the play in a minimal, dreamlike space where an amazing group of actors speak Kane’s repetitious screams and moans of jarring dialogue, brilliantly led by a phenomenally brave tour de force turn by Dylan Jones in an effort to moor their synchronized and highly choreographed movements.
