Double Bill of One Act Plays

by Steven Berkoff and Bernard Shaw, 17-21 July
2012


Sink the Belgrano!

A political satire based on the events and personalities of the Falklands conflict with dark undertones. As Maggot Scratcher debates with her Downing Street lackeys Pimp and Nit, a supporting cast of submariners, Falklands residents, ministry hats and the President of Argentina describe and disseminate the events of 1982. Beautifully irreverent, the play is a must see for all interested in political intrigue and modern history.

"It had to be written. What a story! All those statements and contradictions in the House of Commons. All those statesmen lying their heads off in the Commons," Steven Berkoff.

The Man of Destiny

An investigation of a young twenty-seven year old general by the name of Napoleon Bonaparte who has yet to achieve the accomplishments for which make him such an important figure in world history. In the play we find him waiting impatiently at an inn on the road between Lodi and Milan for a packet of dispatches to arrive, in which he will discover the truth of a personal betrayal.

With rich dialogue and dramatic style Shaw delivers within this short little work a satisfying character study and a portrait of the everyday life of a great man prior to his greatness.
