Cast announced for Steven Berkoff double bill

First Published 7 September 2016, Last Updated 7 September 2016

Shaun Dooley and Emily Bruni will star in a major West End season of Steven Berkoff one-act plays, Lunch and The Bow Of Ulysses, directed by Nigel Harman, at Trafalgar Studios.

Shaun is perhaps best known to TV audiences as Greg in Misfits, and Ricky Gillespie from murder mystery Broadchurch. Peep Show fans will recognise Emily, the show’s Gail, and she can also currently be seen as Simone in The Collection, the major new series launched this week on Amazon Prime.

Lunch, and its sequel The Bow Of Ulysses, are two of Berkoff’s finest small pieces, examining the relationship between a couple when they first meet and have a seemingly fruitless one night stand, and how they are years later after two decades of marriage.

Producer Jimmy Jewell said: “Berkoff‘s plays are always physically demanding for the actors involved. In Lunch and The Bow Of Ulysses, intentional vulgarity sits cheek by jowl with passages of poetic clarity, allowing the characters to reveal the most painful and ugly aspects of their lives… This is a rare opportunity to see two of Berkoff’s finest small pieces.”

The double bill will open at the Trafalgar Studios on 6 October, for a limited 5 week season. Book your tickets through the official website.
