Cast Announced for D.C. Signature Staging of Kane's Crave

News   Cast Announced for D.C. Signature Staging of Kane's Crave
Sarah Kane's Crave will inaugurate the 99-seat ARK Theatre in the Signature Theatre's new $16 million complex in Arlington, VA.

Performances begin Jan. 30 under the direction of Jeremy Skidmore. The cast includes Kathleen Coons, Deborah Hazelett, Joe Isenberg and John Lescault.

"Set in an unidentifiable city from which voices and images spring, Crave is a dramatized deconstruction of the human mind under the pressures of love, loss, and longing," according to Signature notes. "Four nameless characters tell their tales of disintegration and isolation."

British playwright Sarah Kane was hailed as a potential heir to such existential playwrights as Samuel Beckett and Edward Bond prior to her untimely death at the age of 28.

The ARK is a black box space named in honor of lead donors Arlene and Robert Kogod.

Performances of Crave continue to April 1. Tickets are on sale now. For information, visit or call (800) 955-5566 or visit *

Now playing the Signature's MAX space is a new production of Sondheim and Lapine's Into the Woods.
