Performance Details - Coriolanus
Berkoff, East Productions, June 1996
"Everything seems black in Steven Berkoff's Mussolini-period revival of 'Coriolanus': the towering slats that back the stage, the severe chairs in front of them, the shirts and breeches, the glasses on the Volscian senators' noses. The dark-blue pin-striped suit under the plastic trenchcoat worn by Berkoff's hero looks colourful in these sable surroundings, and the red hair, lips and dress of Faith Brook's Volumnia seem as garish as lightning at midnight." Benedict Taylor, Times, 14.6.96
