Enough Said

This is priceless and needs no further embellishment from me. In a review of the play "Blasted" by Sarah Kane, published in 2007 in the online British Theatre Guide, critic Peter Lathan notes the following:

"One minor - but very telling - point, which says an awful lot about the way our society is going: in a play which presents us with full frontal nudity and graphic scenes of masturbation, oral sex, rape, buggery, cannibalism, torture and suicide, the company felt it necessary to note in the programme that "Cigarettes used in this production are herbal".
