The Trial @ The Rondo Theatre

By Steven Berkoff

Presented by Playing Up

On the morning of his 30th birthday the chief cashier of an unnamed bank, Josef K., is unexpectedly arrested by two unidentified agents from an unspecified agency for an unspecified crime.  He spends months awaiting trial but has no idea why and, ultimately begins to realise, that he will never find out why.

Told using Berkoff’s inimitable style of mime (Berkoff studied mime in Paris under Le Coq) and physical theatre, this is an absurdist comedy with Orwellian overtones.  Using a Greek style chorus who never leave the stage Berkoff created a classic and unique piece of British theatre that is a visual theatrical treat and, in places, absurdly funny.
