FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Loyola’s Department of Theatre Presents Crave
CHICAGO, Feb. 21, 2006 Loyola University Chicago’s Department of Theatre presents Sarah Kane’s, “Crave.” The production begins Tuesday, February 21, 2006 at 7:30 p.m. in the Studio Theatre, located at Centennial Forum Student Union on the University’s Lake Shore Campus (1125 W. Loyola Ave.), and is directed by senior Pat Quinlan.
Some believe the theatre world lost one of the finest late 20th century dramatists when Sarah Kane committed suicide in 1999. Her work produced extreme reactions in both critics and audiences, though many failed to appreciate the poetry of her writing until it was too late. In the original production of “Crave,” four individuals seated on chairs represent four warring factions of one individual’s consciousness, providing a deeply-moving, honest and engrossing experience.
“Crave” runs from February 21-26, 2006. General admission tickets for the production are priced at $5 and can be reserved by calling the Loyola Theatre Box Office at 773-508-3847 or by e-mailing requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
