Steven Berkoff directs the World Premiere of his latest play, 6 Actors in Search of a Director, a comedy set on a film location, for a strictly limited West End season at the Charing Cross Theatre.
Six actors are on a movie set waiting for their call. Until then, they are in limbo, needing the director to bring them to life. He does this merely by using the one magic word - “Action!”
The cast includes Neil Stuke (last seen at the NT in Season’s Greetings, in the West End in Boeing Boeing and Blue Orange, and on TV in the drama series Silk), Philip Voss (one of Britain's pre-eminent performers of Shakespeare, whose credits include numerous performances at the RSC and for the Peter Hall company), Andrée Bernard (Hollyoaks, Doctor Who, Poirot and Only Fools and Horses), Sarah Chamberlain (Berkoffs’s Biblical Tales at the New End), Ruth Everett (Tiger Country at Hampstead, Rain Man National Tour), Jonathan Sidgwick (Berkoff's Messiah & Oedipus) and Paul Trussell (The King’s Speech, Life is Sweet, Secrets & Lies on film, Sharpe’s Rifles & Sharpe’s Eagles on TV).
Writer and director Steven Berkoff has written this latest stage play based on his experiences of shooting more than 50 movies, including playing villains in the Hollywood blockbusters Beverly Hills Cop, Rambo and most recently The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. He has directed and appeared in numerous stage productions and written original stage plays including East, Decadence, The Secret Love Life Of Ophelia, Massage, Acapulco, Brighton Beach Scumbags, Kvetch and Sit And Shiver.
