This chapter considers a key play from the 1990s that encapsulated contemporary violence in images of shocking immediacy. Sarah Kane's Blasted, which involves, among other horrors, the eating of a dead baby, was first performed in 1995 at the Royal Court, and revived at the same theatre in 2001. This chapter examines reviews of the two productions, which are markedly different in tone.
