Based on the novel of the same title by the British writer, Robert Smythe Hichens (1864-1950), THE PROPHET OF BERKELEY SQUARE is a send-up of the astrology and psychic reading craze that so permeated London society circa 1900. With its witty dialogue and hilarious plot, Frank Morlock's adaptation of Hichens's satiric masterpiece is just as funny today as the bestselling novel was when first published in 1901. Hennessey Vivian, the would-be Prophet of Berkeley Square, must fend off his rival, Jupiter Malkiel II, to secure the devotion of enough fashionable adherents to win the prophecy "battle of the stars." The over-the-top characters are easily recognizable as familiar types in today's modern society. Great comedic drama!
