Final casting has been announced for the first complete London revival of Noël Coward’s Tonight at 8.30 since 1936, being staged by Jermyn Street Theatre as part of its The Reaction Season.
This lively revival of Steven Berkoff’s 1975 modern classic is energetically sweaty, if a bit messy as well.
Set in the East End of yore, Steven Berkoff uses his bastardised Shakespeare’n’slang prose style to depict the lives there with an extraordinary vigour.
Shocking, provocative and poetic. Steven Berkoff’s punchy verse play, East, has returned to its roots. No, not Bethnal Green or the Mile End Road, but the King’s Head Theatre Islington, where it made its London debut in 1975.
Steven Berkoff’s masterpiece EAST will open the new year at London’s King’s Head Theatre, where it made its London debut in 1975. The new production, directed by Life According to Saki’s Jessica Lazar, runs from 9 January to 3 February 2018.
