- Priest: So where do you find your joy?
- Hippolytus: Within.
- Priest: I find that hard to believe.
- Hippolytus: Course you do. You think life has no meaning unless we have another person in it to torture us.
- Priest: I have no one to torture me.
- Carl: I don't expect anything.
- Rod: Yes you do.
— Aleks Sierz on Sarah Kane.
— Jeremy Weller on Kane.
- Phaedra: You can't stop me loving you.

Anonymous asked: I am looking for a contact of the one who has the copyrights of Sarah's plays. Thanks :)
The quick reply is: I don’t know.
The slightly more elaborate and helpful reply is that I believe you should contact Methuen Drama, although that might only be related to the printed rights. This isn’t the first time that I’ve gotten this question and I am sorry to say I still have no idea of where to direct you. But here are the answers I gave on the previous occasions, which might be of use: Performance rights, and translation rights.
Once again, if anybody has any idea, please let me know.
PS- I am going to be making some sort of FAQ as soon as I have some free time, I’ll include these replies and if you can think of anything else you’d like to know/you’d think would be useful for such a section, let me know! :)
ETA - Some lovely followers have some info that might be of use! rossbennett recommends http://www.casarotto.co.uk, which licenses performances of Phaedra’s Love, so it might have the rights for Kane’s other plays. And if they don’t, they might be able to have more information. And pinkcollins mentions ‘Samuel French’, saying that if they recall correctly, that’s who they used a few years back.
Thank you! :)
