A wastrel youth becomes involved in several sexual affairs and at least one murder. In 1981 Bowie took the title role of a BBC television adaptation of Brecht’s play Baal. The titular protagonist is a drunken poet, iconoclast and womanizer, whose decline is charted over the course of the play. Brecht wrote Baal, his first full-length play, in 1918, yet it was not performed in public until 1923. Its premiere took place on 8 December that year at the Altes Theater in Leipzig, and it was reworked for a 1926 production in Berlin. The BBC adaptation was directed by Alan Clarke, who was best known for his social realism works for television and cinema. These included Scum, Made In Britain, and the feature film Rita, Sue And Bob Too. (Additional notes from Bowiebible.com) Baal 1982
