19 - 23 SEPTEMBER - PACT THEATRE
BY SARAH KANE
In a nameless institution six disparate outcasts have their lives and bodies observed, dissected and obliterated by the eyes of the everpresent Tinker - perhaps a friend, perhaps a doctor, perhaps neither.
For the first time in over a decade the most shocking and controversial play by one of the world’s most shocking and controversial playwrights comes to the Sydney stage. Sarah Kane’s Cleansed pushes every element of theatre to its excruciating limits and Montague Basement’s daring multimedia production is a unique opportunity not to be missed.

"The experience is exceptional. Cleansed will cause your brain to short-circuit into half-formed ideas and interpretations, leaving your body to physically feel the emotions of the play."
"When Montague Basement give us this production of Cleansed, they are the theoretical fulfilment of a true avant-garde. And surely this is what any Fringe Festival is all about at its heart."
