Greek in the UK

Brighton Little Theatre present Greek from 25- 30 May 2015. The director is Mike Wells.

"Steven Berkoff’s Greek is Sophocles’ great tragedy of incest, patricide, plague and mutilation, re-imagined in Thatcher’s Britain not in ancient Thebes. The language is poetic but filthy. The dialogue veers into unmentionable subjects; characters swear, strip, have sex, humiliate each other and become suddenly and spectacularly violent. Not for the faint-hearted but a cathartic, visceral and moving piece of theatre. and true to the shocking and intense drama of the original Oedipus Rex. "
