by Sarah Kane
This stunning play from the controversial author of Blasted premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London in spring 1998 and comes to the National Theatre in February 2016.
Tinker practises the art of atrocity, but even he isn’t immune from the need for love. Existing on the border between beauty and brutality, Cleansed imagines a world in which language, human relationships and the body itself are pared away to bare bone.
One of Britain’s most influential playwrights, Sarah Kane (1971 – 99) receives her National Theatre debut in an unflinching new production by Katie Mitchell.
