This Christmas, Steven Berkoff plays Satan. It's hardly a stretch. Just look at him. Those pointy ears, the demonic stare, that sharkish leer. The owner of one of the most famous moles in showbiz (or could it be the remains of a lopped-off horn?) has made a career of playing the bad guy, both on stage and off.
Predominantly its an attack on the ‘luvvies’ of the London theatre scene which can at times felt very outdated as if Berkoff has become out of touch with the the industry he has influenced for so long. The set is minimalistic, stark lighting and one lonely lit chair to which our characters emerge from the wings. Berkoff plays an actor who has just written his first play, Andree Bernard plays another actress and Jay Benedict a successful theatre director, playwright and poet. The three fill the air with sweet pleasantries to start, complementing each other and providing musings about the differences between stage and TV and Film acting. Gradually they become frustrated and aggravated with one another as Berkoff summons theatrical greats, Olivier, Osborne and Williamson to reinforce his idea that the industry is not as it once was.
