West | DVD
Steven Berkoff DVD | West | East Productions present Channel 4’s 1984 adaptation of Steven Berkoff’s ‘West’.
Set in the 1960s, the age of rock ‘n’ roll and teenage rebellions. The struggle for street supremacy among London’s East End gangs wages unabated. Mike leads his ‘boys’ into a pitched battle with the rough Hoxton mob. For Mike, his fight is not just with Curly, the rival gang leader, it is with everything that makes his life a drudgery- his job, his family and his environment.
‘The language sizzles: violent, tender, obscene, sensual, poetic, earthy and exotic by turns.’ Channel 4 Magazine.
‘Scissor-sharp production of Steven Berkoff’s clever Shakespeare pastiche about gang rivalry between mods and rockers. The combination of Bardish simile, RSC mannerisms and contemporary song is irresistible.’ The Observer.
Contains exclusive interviews with Steven Berkoff and members of the cast that give a unique insight into Berkoff’s creative process.
Run time approx. 198 minutes.
Region 2 DVD Format.
