Shakespeare's villains
and the one- and two-handers

Shakespeare's Villains is called a Masterclass in Evil.  Berkoff explores and analyses Shakespeare's most villainous characters- Iago, the Macbeths, Shylock, Richard III… characters who are inherently evil, others whose situation leads them to evil deeds, others at the mercy of an evil society.

The other solo plays are Harry's Christmas (1985), Dog (1993), Actor (1994). Dog and Actor are often performed together with Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart under the title One Man.

Two-handers include Lunch (1983) and its companion piece The Bow of Ulysses (2002) as well as The Secret Love Life of Ophelia (2001).

The Tell-Tale Heart is available on video.
