Steven Berkoff & Martin Kemp
Playwright and actor Steven Berkoff has a passionate and controversial conversation with 80s pop legend and actor Martin Kemp. Bonding over stories of their upbringing, they talk candidly about their early dreams of heroism, a love of comics, and music idols. Martin also talks about his hedonistic lifestyle during his time in the band Spandau Ballet and how he suffered (and recovered) from two brain tumours. Steven reveals how bereft he felt when he discovered his work was being avoided by theatre companies and auditionees. In an open and honest revelation he talks about the protracted ‘vituperation of abuse’ from journalist Julie Burchill and how he challenged her in the law courts.
