About Decadence
27 March 1999 | by (Florence, Italy) – See all my reviews

The play features two actors playing four characters.

Helen and Steve (played by Steven Berkoff and Joan Collins)are rich, having an affair, and speak in "strangulated, upper class accents". Working class Sybil and Les, played by the same two actors, are Steve's wife and a private detective hired to follow her husband.

The theme of the play is that the upper classes subjugate the working classes not by brute force, but by a willing adherence by both to the British class system.

The play's monologues satirize mainly "the ruling classes or upper classes so called by virtue of strangulated vowel tones rather than any real achievement", but it also makes fun of the vices of the working classes.

Just another masterpiece by the British actor/director/writer Steven Berkoff. Not to be missed.
