Berkoff, Steven, author; Berkoff, Steven

What happens when an ordinary gathering is peeled back to expose the fears and insecurities beneath? Frank and Donna are having dinner with her mother-in-law and friends George and Hal, but under the surface there lie anxieties and desires waiting to be unleashed. In 'Kvetch' Steven Berkoff examines the tension and frustration seething under the surface of domesticity in an American marriage that has run out of steam. A play that explores the nature of neurosis, but also personal and cultural identity, 'Kvetch' was named London's Evening Standard comedy of the year in 1991, having premiered at the Odyssey Theatre, Los Angeles, in March 1986
