Berkoff’s ‘East’ in Brighton is Stunning

May 6th, 2016

You know you’re inEast_88LondonRoad_Brighton_Source_MilesDaviesMikeA859-342x228 the presence of something truly magnificent when you find yourself completely captivated by a play from the moment it begins. Steven Berkoff’s incredible script – as raw and shocking as it was when the play was first performed 40 years ago is so eloquent, so Shakespearean in its use of language, you are captivated from the start. Alan Perrin’s production of the play for the Brighton Fringe at 88 London Road is superb – the four actors give flawless, stunning performances. I’d have dished out BAFTAs and Oscars to them all if I’d had some in my pocket. (I’m running out of superlatives here. You can see I was knocked out by last night’s show!) The play is witty, provocative, challenging and utterly engrossing. If you’re in Sussex or London, anywhere you can get to Brighton, scoot down to see it before the run ends 21 May. If you are not truly amazed I promise I will eat my hat on video and post this on this blog. More info or to book.
