Agamemnon The Fall of the House of Usher | Paperback | New Signed Copy
Steven Berkoff paperback book | New & Signed by Steven Berkoff | Agamemnon - The Fall of the House of Usher | Adapted from Aeschylus' great tragedy, Berkoff's version of Agamemnon evolved over a long period of workshop sessions with the London Theatre Group and was first performed at the Round House in 1973. The definitive version was presented at the Greenwich Theatre in 1976. The play is about heat and battle, fatigue, the marathon and the obscenity of modern and future wars.
In The Fall of the House of Usher Berkoff takes Edgar Allan Poe's horrific tale and, as one French critic pointed out, explodes the text to create a new form that retains the central core. The play as first performed at the Edinburgh Festival in 1974 and subsequently at the Hampstead Theatre Club in 1975.
