It’s London in the 1970s and Mike, Les and Slv are fighting for their youth. Filling their days with sex and violence, they battle both the boredom they fear and the inevitable future they see in their parents, ultimately finding that history is doomed to repeat itself.

East offers a stylized and humorous examination of the violence and uncertainty of growing up in the east end of London.

Steven Berkoff’s East premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in August 1975, in a London Theatre Group production.
