Lent Week 6
Eddy is stuck in a metropolis of piss-artists, violence and greasy toast. He escapes. Gets married, gets himself sorted. But he’s only gone and bedding his ol’ mum and killed his Dad. He’s screwed. But what can you do? Berkoff’s reworking of the Oedipus myth graphically smacks you around in a cutting-comic journey through central London with melodies of the lost but never forgotten and ensemble acting of the first order. A seaside slap-stick façade of tragic hubris and grief through the broken lens of the oppressed working classes of Thatcher’s 1980s Britain. It’s a cesspit. Right?
