Berkoff back at the LPAC for a true 'One Man' show
Steven Berkoff in One Man Screen and stage legend Steven Berkoff will enthral an audience at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre later this month with his own macabre exploration of the darker side of human nature.

Following his captivating solo performance of Shakespeare's Villains last year, Berkoff returns to the theatre on the University of Lincoln's Brayford Pool campus on Saturday 30 January with his production, One Man.

The drama is a two-act social satire exploring the mind-set of a murderer wracked with guilt and a mindless soccer hooligan complete with pit bull terrier.

The first piece, a frighteningly macabre re-telling of The Tell-Tale Heart, revisits Edgar Allen Poe's famous short story about a mad man's murderous revenge on a fishy-eyed miser.

Then, in Dog, Berkoff plays both a pit bull and his lager-swilling football hooligan owner in this relevant and apposite comedy of manners.

Victoria Simpson, Events and Programme Manager at the LPAC, said: "Steven Berkoff's last performance at the LPAC was a spectacular occasion and one which the audience greatly enjoyed. We're very pleased to be able to welcome back a star theatrical performer."

Steven Berkoff's One Man takes place at 8pm on Saturday 30 January at the LPAC on the University of Lincoln's Brayford Pool campus.

Tickets cost 15 (12 concessions) and are available from the Engine Shed and LPAC Box Office, open Monday to Friday from 10am - 4pm, Brayford Wharf East, Lincoln. They are also available by phoning 0844 888 4414 or visiting www.lpac.co.uk.
