I am Hamlet free pdf What goes through a man's mind when he is playing Hamlet? How does Shakespeare's best known play actually work, from the inside? And what effect does playing Hamlet have on a man's life? Steven Berkoff nine years ago directed a production of "Hamlet" in which he took the title role, and here are his scene-by-scene observations, which cover the whole range of human experience - from love and death, to life in Britain now. "I am Hamlet" not only shows the mind of an actor at work, but it is also an expression of the lasting authority of Shakespeare's play.

About Steven Berkoff

Steven Berkoff was born in Stepney, East London and started acting at the City Literary Institute when he was 19. Following more training at the Webber Douglas School of Drama, he worked extensively in repertory theatre in England and Scotland - doing every job from understudy to stage management. In 1968 he formed his own company, the London Theatre Group. Through mime, gymnastics and voice, the Group liberated themselves from the conventions of mainstream theatre and started to evolve an innovative, more integrated theatrical language. Berkoff's encounter with the mime artist Jacque le Coq in Paris was seminal in this. Steven Berkoff's plays include East, West, Sink the Belgrano!, Decadence, Kvetch, Acapulco, Ritual in Blood, Oedipus, Messiah: Scenes from a Crucifixtion, The Secret Love Life of Ophelia, West, Decadence, Sit and Shiver, Greek, Harry's Christmas, Lunch, Acapulco, Sink the Belgrano!, Massage, Sturm und Drang and Brighton Beach Scumbags. He has written an autobiography, Free Association, and the theatre books I Am Hamlet, Overview and Meditations on Metamorphosis. Among Berkoff's film credits are Octopussy, Beverly Hills Cop and his own production of Decadence.
