GableStage at the Biltmore presents Sarah Kane’s "Blasted," touted as "one of the most controversial plays ever produced in South Florida." Set over a short period in a pricey hotel room, "Blasted" depicts racy scenes involving rape, torture and other acts of violence in the midst of a civil war. The play was Ms. Kane’s first work. Her praised pieces number few, as the English playwright committed suicide at a young age. Contains profanity, full-frontal nudity, explicit sexual activity and graphic violence. No one under 17 admitted. 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sundays. GableStage at the Biltmore, 1200 Anastasia Ave., Coral Gables. $37.50-$45.

Mr. Shaffer was inspired to write the tale after hearing about a crime involving a 17 year old and sought to create a fictional account of what might have prompted the incident. Contains cigarette smoking, nudity and other adult content. 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday. 1 p.m. Sunday. Additional performances at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 14, 21 and 28. Ends April 4.
