Casting announced for Sarah Kane season in Sheffield

The season comprises the acclaimed playwright's complete works

Kane committed suicide in 1999

Sheffield Theatres artistic director Daniel Evans has announced full casting for the venue's upcoming Sarah Kane season.

The season, which runs throughout February, features full productions of Kane's plays Blasted, Crave and 4.48 Psychosis, alongside semi-staged readings of Phaedra's Love and Cleansed, and a screening of her film, Skin.

Richard Wilson will direct Jessica Barden (Cate), Martin Marquez (Ian) and Mark Stanley (Soldier) in the 20th anniversary production of Blasted.

Charlotte Gwinner will then direct Rakie Ayola (M), Pearl Chanda (C), Christopher Fulford (A) and Tom Mothersdale (B) in Crave and 4.48 Psychosis.

Evans said: "I had the great privilege of knowing Sarah Kane. I got to act in two world premieres of her plays... She is undoubtedly one of the most courageous people I've known and I'm delighted to be presenting a season of her work here in Sheffield."
