Description

Set in an unnamed city from which voices and images spring, Crave charts the disintegration of a human mind under the pressures of love, loss and desire

"A hugely unnerving theatrical experience, shot through with the language of the Bible and a genuinely poetic richness" (Time Out)

"A dramatic poem in the late-Beckett style, sometimes a chamber quartet for lost voices" (The Times)
Produced by Paines Plough and Bright Ltd (Guy Chapman and Paul Spyker), Crave premiered at the Traverse Theatre for the 1998 Edinburgh Festival. It received its English premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in September 1998.
