CLEANSED Directed by Katie Mitchell Opens at The National

by Sarah Kane, directed by Katie Mitchell

17th February – 5th May 2016, Dorfman Theatre

You love me so much why can’t you remember my name?

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.
