Dahling You Were Marvellous
    By Steven Berkoff

    23:00, Wed 3rd – Sat 6th December 2008 at ADC Theatre
    Michaelmas Week 8

    'You were marvellous tonight, no I really mean super well done!'

    A budding actor looks for praise on his first performance, whilst a low budget director complains at the lack of money he is offered to 'put on artistic failures'. One slightly overweight producer incessantly hits on a beautiful young actress, whereas Steve, sitting at a table in the corner, perpetually questions his suitability to the role of Macbeth.

    Set in a suave London restaurant, Berkoff's fast-moving comedy depicts a world in which one's reputation and social standing is fundamental for success. As we observe how the characters publically compliment and privately criticise one another, we begin to realise just how superficial the theatrical world can be. Through his presentation of amusing caricatures and hilarious conversations, Berkoff manages to portray a unique critique on theatre, which is sure to cause you to think twice on how you respond to this production.
