Sit and Shiver | Paperback | New Signed Copy
Steven Berkoff | Sit & Shiver | New & Signed by Steven.
Steven writes about how a certain Jewish family mourns a dead patriarch. The term used is 'sitting Shiva' (mourning for seven days), when friends and relatives commiserate, usually in the home of the deceased. As children, we always understood this to be 'sit and shiver', which also seemed most appropriate. While death has claimed the old man and triggered the usual inflated eulogies - 'how important a man becomes when they die' - it has also brought to the surface hidden anxieties and grievances, only exacerbated when a visitor shows up bearing news that threatens to tear the family apart.
A Jewish Black comedy in the Berkoff tradition.
Sit and Shiver was first presented at the Odyssey Theatre, Los Angeles, in March 2004. the European premiere was held at the New End Theatre, London, in association with Saw Productions, in May 2006.
