Blasted at GableStage a Lovely Yet Hard to Watch Elegy for Love
Sarah Kane's controversial Blasted is one of the loveliest and hardest to watch plays you'll ever see, an elegy for love in a world rent by violence and the corruption of power. "I am dying to make love!" cried one character, but he can't — armed and dangerous, all he can do is rape. Todd Allen Durkin turns in a career-high performance, flanked by Betsy Graver and Erik Fabregat, who add shades of soul to a play that was already full of it.
