Post Productions is honoured to present this brilliant, intense, brutally beautiful, and subtle play - one of the most controversial and influential scripts of the 20th century - for Windsor-Essex audiences. In BLASTED, Ian, a middle-aged journalist, arranges a rendezvous in an upscale Leeds hotel room with Cate, a young woman with whom Ian hopes to rekindle a relationship that ended several years before. Outside their room, war is coming with an unseen and unspecified enemy. Unseen, that is, until a soldier arrives and the hotel room, and out assumptions about what's going on, are blown to pieces.
Although frequently produced in continental Europe, BLASTED is rarely staged in the English-speaking world. Post Productions is one of only four theatre companies to bring it to Canada. See it while you can; you may never get another chance.
WARNING: This play is not suitable for children. It contains mature themes, offensive language, nudity, and acts of physical, sexual, and psychological violence.
