East: Elegy for the East and its Energetic Waste

Play by British author, actor and director Steven Berkoff, written in 1975.

"East tells the story of East London from the perspective of five grotesque and multifaceted characters using a fierce blend of Shakespearean language, Berkoff's unique style of physical theatre and mime and the raucous and vulgar slang of the streets.

The play's themes of adolescent lust, entrenched racism and the carnage of youthful brutality on the streets of London are more relevant today than ever before. This story of nostalgia and longing is reenergized by a new and multicultural cast to bring Berkoff's timeless story raging into the present."
