  "Angry Young (Wo)Men": Theatrical Violence as Ethical Debate

In late 1995, two significant events changed the theatrical landscape:
John Osborne (Look Back in
Anger) died, and Sarah Kane's play Blasted premiered at the Royal Court
Theatre in London. The timing
was somewhat serendipitous—as one of the original "Angry Young Men"
left this world, one of the "New
Brutalists" made her mark on it.
