Description - Phaedra's Love by Sarah Kane

A rewriting of the Phaedra myth, "Phaedra's Love" continued Kane's fragmentation of naturalism, and was her first play to deal explicitly with what was to become her main theme: love. Hippolytus, the spoiled prince, is driven to preserve his self inviolate. Emotions, particularly love, and need of any type are an unbearable threat to the prince. Phaedra, his stepmother, is in love with him. The impossibility of the situation leads to their bloody destruction.
