Agamemnon in Virginia, USA

Theatre at Bridgewater College presents Berkoff's adaptation of Agamemnon from 6-9 Nov 2014.  The director is Scott Cole, the cast includes Amber Celen, Whitney Lee DeBilzan, Jordan M. Haugh, Emily A. Leweke, Aislinn H. Mirsch, John Thomas Oates, Chandler Parker, Kai Sutherland and Briana R. Williams.  Movement director is Holly Labbe.

"Following his victory in the Trojan War, Agamemnon, king of Argos, returns home after 10 long years. His queen, Clytemnestra, is bent on revenge for his sacrifice of their daughter. Intense and highly poetic, Steven Berkoff’s free adaptation of Aeschylus’ great tragedy, Agamemnon, portrays the cyclical nature of violence told through the story of war, lust, murder, betrayal and revenge".

An Actor's Lament in Ireland and UK

Berkoff An Actors Lament

Berkoff's new play, An Actor's Lament, continues a tour, reaching Dublin and Margate, UK, prior to a London production.

"Steven Berkoff stars with Jay Benedict and Andree Bernard in this glimpse backstage, lifting the curtain on the bizarre and often hilarious world of theatre. From precious playwrights and dictator directors to the good will (or otherwise) of the critics – a maze of thickets actors must negotiate before they ever reach the stage."

It is at the The Theatre Royal, Margate from 13- 15 May 2014 and the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin from 1- 6 Sept 2014.

 

The Birthday Party without Berkoff

Berkoff was to have appeared in Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party.  The director is William Friedkin (who also directed The Exorcist).  Tim Roth is in the production but Berkoff, who would play Goldstein, is no longer in the production due to artistic differences.  Roth worked with Berkoff previously in Metamorphosis.
