Sarah Kane, 1900’ların yüzleştirmeci tiyatrosunun en önemli yazarlarından biridir. Tiyatronun insanların hayatlarını değiştirmedeki gücüne inanan Kane, etraflarındaki hoş olmayan olaylara sessiz kalmamaları için izleyicilerin hislerini sarsmayı amaçlar. Bu anlamda, Blasted eseri bir başarıdır. Oyun, yüzleştirmeci tiyatronun bütün niteliklerini örneklerdirmektedir. Bu çalışma, Blasted’ı inceleyerek, yüzleştirmeci tiyatronun izleyicileri dile getirilmeyen ve gizlenen hadiselerle nasıl yüzleştirdiğini göstermeyi amaçlar. Sahnedeki argo dil, cinsellik, şiddet ve felaket senaryolarıyla oluşturulan ortamıyla, oyun birçok geleneksel tiyatro özelliklerini yıkarak bütün tabuları kırar.

Sarah Kane is one of the most significant playwrights of the 1990s’ in-yer-face theatre. Kane, who believes in the power of theatre in changing people’s lives, aims to shake the audiences’ senses not to remain silent about the unpleasant events around them. In this sense, her Blasted is an achievement. The play exemplifies all features of in-yer-face theatre. By examining Blasted, the study aims at indicating how in-yer-face theatre makes the spectators face the things which are unsaid and concealed. Through its filthy language, sexuality, violence, and atmosphere constructed with catastrophic plots on the stage, the play violates a lot of conventional theatrical features and breaks all taboos.
