Michaelmas Week 5
'There is no holding back or reserve in the East End of youth as I remember... you lived for the moment and vitally held it... you said what you thought and did what you felt.' - Steven Berkoff
Berkoff's East follows the violent and lustful exploits of Mike and Les as they crash through the East End and the lives of those around them, competing for the affections of Sylv whilst Mum and Dad fight over the t.v. as their relationship disintegrates. This exciting production seeks to breathe new life into the play by combining a gritty, urban realism with Berkoff's special combination of speech, movement and spectacle.
