Out of her unique association with Steven Berkoff, Linda Marlowe presents, Berkoff's Women, a theatrical exploration of sensuality, revenge, pathos, heart-breaking loneliness and riotous humour. There are selected excerpts from his plays such as Decadence, From My Point Of View, a poignant short story about a woman left on the shelf ageing. Revenge and tragedy as Clytemnestra in Agamemnon avenges her husband's murder of their child. Hilarious sexy stories and The Sphinx from Greek who decimates men for their collusion, killing and rape and eulogises women as superior beings. These are just some of the highlights of Steven's writing for women.
Written by Steven Berkoff
Directed by Josie Lawrence
Note: Contains adult themes and strong language

'Linda Marlowe has become one of our most powerful uninhibited actresses and in this astonishing show, she is at the height of her powers. When she spreads her arms , she embraces the world. Her voice is an instrument of silk and seduction, frayed at the edges and pickled in port.' The Daily Mail
'Marlowe is a consummate actress, gorgeous to look at, slinky and sexy, sensual and impassioned, breathtakingly versatile. She can curse with alluring and compelling charm! It was brilliant. A veritable tour deforce.' The Scotsman
'Marlowe is in the first division of British actresses'. New Yorker
