Sarah Kane

Five years after her suicide at the age of 28, Sarah Kane is one of Europe's most performed playwrights, writes Jess McKinley in the New York Times.
Whether she would have anticipated her popularity or not, what is certain is that Ms. Kane's determination to kill herself was evidently matched by a desire to see her work live: among her possessions, she left behind definitive versions of each of her five plays (hard copies and on disk), including "Psychosis" which she had only just finished, and instructions to her agent to make sure her plays got out there.
