Sarah Kane wrote this highly emotional and gripping play, shortly before she hanged herself in 1999. The title refers to the early hours in the morning when the body is at its lowest and most vulnerable level. So to Kane, 4.48am stands out as a magical moment for death, just like 5pm was it for Lorca. The text is ever so authentic, similar to a suicide note, yet it has a very poetic touch to it.
