Description

'There is no other like Berkoff and there'll never be another.' Daily Mail This volume marks Steven Berkoff's eightieth birthday by bringing together two of his greatest plays from the 1980s, Greek - an audacious take on Oedipus - and Decadence, a visceral satire of the upper classes and the social divide in Britain. With a preface by the playwright and an introduction by Aleks Sierz. 'The least remarked upon achievement of Berkoff is his influence.' Dominic Dromgoole, The Full Room
