East

Snowdrop Productions & 88 London Road

East is a play of boundless vitality and a roller-coaster invention of poetic violence and excitement.  Centred around a couple of razor-happy randy nobs of almost total moral repellence but absolute physical charm, Berkoff masterminds a totally unique theatrical  experience,with language that sea-saws from the elegance of  Shakespearian verse to the downright shatteringly profane.

As relevant today as it was when first produced, East hones in on the lives and loves of the underclasses, the spiked social injustices which continue to divide the have and have-nots today,and consign the poorest  to invisibility until they explode in rage.


PRAISE FOR EAST

‘Perhaps the most exciting revival of East seen since the 25th anniversary tour in 2000, faultlessly filthy and in ensemble singing, breaking new ground’ Fringe Review

‘Director Alan Perrin, abetted by Berkoff, has created a rare thing for Brighton Fringe – a flawless show that shocks, titillates, and provides an awkward glimpse into an underclass that still exists today in Great Britain’ ***** – The Reviews Hub
