(From the Guardian, 10/24.)
I never met Sarah Kane. Although we were the same age, her career picked up momentum faster than mine. My first professional production was in 2001; she died in 1999, aged just 28. I regret never meeting her, not only because she was one of the finest British playwrights of the last 50 years but because she was an ardent Man United fan. I think we could have wasted time together talking about her love for David Beckham, and mine for Eric Cantona.
