There is a production of Lunch in London from 8-14 July 2013 at the Rosemary Branch theatre.

"A man, a woman and an unwanted sandwich: Stephen Berkoff's Lunch explores the collision of small talk between two strangers stranded on a sunny seaside beach."

The link is here

Note the incorrect spelling Stephen

Hi Lily and Eddie,

A good question.  The play was premiered in 1983 though Berkoff wrote it earlier (I need to check when).  I don't think the play is bound to a particular time period, I think it remains valid now.  The time period will be the 70s and 80s (assuming he wrote it in the 70s), if you are looking at the context I would take this.

Does this help?  Let us know about your project, it sounds interesting.

We are two A level students doing 'Lunch' for our exam this May. For this we have to write a written performanxce concept which must include social, historical, political and cultural context. We were e-mailing to ask if you knew what date 'Lunch' is set in?
