Decadence

Author: Steven Berkoff. Director: Sue Flack. Starring: Sue Flack & Caspar.

Escapade Theatre presents a performance of 'Decadence', a corrosive critique of two opposed social classes still very much alive in Great Britain today and a parable on the seven deadly sins, especially gluttony, sexual greed, depravity in private schools, the cruelty of hunting, slaves to fashion, drunkenness and snobbery.

It's the story of two unfaithful couples. A rich working-class woman hires a private detective to spy on her husband, an aristocrat having an affair with an upper-class lady. Berkoff uses these finely drawn characters to criticise the British class system and all that it represents for him. (Not appropriate for young people under the age of 16.)
