Sarah Kane and the Sciences of Mind

This project explores Sarah Kane's dramaturgy in relation to developments in psychiatry and psychoanalytic theory from the 1980s to the present. My wider research interests include  21st century dramaturgy, media presentation of mental illness, medical humanities, and psychoanalysis both in critical and therapeutic contexts.

My first article, 'A Director in Search of a Narrative: Reality-testing in Katie Mitchell's Cleansed'' was published in Performance Research Journal and is available via the Taylor and Francis website.
