Berkoff has Russian and Romanian ancestry but grew up in London's East End.  He had a difficult childhood, but struggled to escape through theatre.  He started with minor roles in small theatres throughout the country.  When he formed the London Theatre Group he emerged as a vibrant talent combining mime and theatre.  The group covered classics by Kafka and Poe.  Then Berkoff starting writing original works such as East and is now established as a major playwright, the most performed in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival after Shakespeare, and for a long time the most performed in theatre auditions.  As well as theatre Berkoff has made more than 80 films and television roles.
