Unless you woo the kind of girl who routinely spends Saturday night watching Faces of Death while self-mutilating with a stove-fired butter knife, Sarah Kane's Blasted isn't first-date material. When the play made its 1995 premiere in London, people fled the theater on the edge of puking and Daily Mail reviewer Jack Tinker called it a "disgusting feast of filth."
So, fourth date maybe? In any case, GableStage at the Biltmore will present a totally uncensored staging of the infamous Brit shockfest, which means there'll be lots of bad words, nudity, cannibalism, suicide, and rape. You gotta be 17 years or older to even get in the door. No joke.
