Berkoff is back! After storming the New Zealand stage in 2005 with Shakespeare’s Villains, theatre’s enfant terrible returns to once more thrill and excite.

As one of the world’s most acclaimed actors, writers and directors, Berkoff has electrified audiences with chilling productions such as East, Salome and Coriolanus. Berkoff is also internationally renowned for his portrayal of evil characters in films such as Octopussy, Beverly Hills Cop and Rambo.

This year Berkoff bursts back onto the stage with his theatrical masterpiece One Man. Consisting of two edge of your seat one-act plays, Tell-Tale Heart and Dog, this is mesmerizing theatre.

Tell-Tale Heart

Surely one of the scariest tales of dementia and murderous compulsion ever!

Tell-Tale Heart is based on the short story by legendary gothic author Edgar Allan Poe and adapted by Berkoff.

This is a tale of horror, told by a man who stands alone in the spotlight. Protesting sanity to while he explains how he systematically went about killing and dismembering a neighbour whose "vulture eye" offended him, and how his perfect crime slowly and surely went astray with each beat of the Tell-Tale Heart.

Dog

Dog is a Steven Berkoff original. It tells the story of a hilarious day in the life of a football hooligan and his pit bull terrier, Roy. One minute Berkoff is the skinhead and the next he is Roy as he reacts to his master's cruel but sometimes loving antics . . .

It's a blistering indictment of the worst of British society, particularly its violent football fans.
