Steven Berkoff : Plays 3 : "Ritual in Blood", "Impressions of a Crucifixion", "Oedipus" v. 3 Paperback

Description

This is a collection of three history plays, each displaying the sparkling muscularity of language that marks Berkoff out as one of the foremost wordsmiths in the English language.

Set in thirteenth-century England, Ritual in Blood looks at the persecution of the Jews.

Messiah begins with the image of Christ on the cross and pits His humanity and transcendent goodness against the evil of those who would kill Him.

Finally, Berkoff offers a sharp and accessible adaptation of Sophocles's Oedipus tragedy.
