This film is the Channel 4’s 1984 adaptation of Steven Berkoff’s ‘West’.

Set in the 1960s, the age of rock ‘n’ roll and teenage rebellions. The struggle for street supremacy among London’s East End gangs wages unabated. Mike leads his ‘boys’ into a pitched battle with the rough Hoxton mob. For Mike, his fight is not just with Curly, the rival gang leader, it is with everything that makes his life a drudgery - his job, his family and his environment. 

Contains exclusive interviews with Steven Berkoff and members of the cast that give a unique insight into Berkoff’s creative process.

Steven Berkoff was born in Stepney, London. After studying drama and mime in London and Paris, he entered a series of repertory companies and in 1968 formed the London Theatre Group. His plays and adaptations have been performed in many countries and in many languages.

"The language sizzles: violent, tender, obscene, sensual, poetic, earthy and exotic by turns." - Channel 4 Magazine.

"Scissor-sharp production of Steven Berkoff’s clever Shakespeare pastiche about gang rivalry between mods and rockers. The combination of Bardish simile, RSC mannerisms and contemporary song is irresistible." - The Observer.
