‘Go away f*** off don’t touch me don’t talk to me stay with me’
Loose Canon preset a satirical portrait of a corroded royal family in Phaedra’s Love by Sarah Kane. Based on the classical story of Phaedra by Seneca, Kane’s fresh and darkly comic adaptation tells a story of passionate desire and its turbulent consequences.
This show contains scenes of an adult nature.
