Award-winning solo performer Pip Utton tours three of his most acclaimed pieces of political theatre in his debut Australia tour with Imagination Workshop.

All three of these performances, Playing Maggie, Adolf and Churchill, demonstrate live theatre at its best. They are both gritty and gripping and present an atmosphere so poignant you could cut it with a knife. Theatre is supposed to ask questions, provoke thought, offer an insight into a world different to your own, and to introduce to you characters you would not otherwise meet. Playing Maggie, Adolf, and Churchill does just that with epic finesse.

Both humorous and serious, defiant yet personal, ‘Churchill’ is a show that refreshingly blends anecdote, research and enthusiasm. Big Ben chimes and strikes 13: and magic fills the stage. The great statesmen in Parliament Square, London, England, come alive again and Winston Churchill descends from his plinth to indulge himself in three of his greatest pleasures: a glass of Scotch, a cigar, and listening to himself talk.

Audience participation is the order of the day in Playing Maggie, a show in which you, the audience are invited to ask questions of The Iron Lady herself, and she guarantees you will get answers to the questions that have burned you for years. Some will make your blood boil. Some will make you laugh. But every single answer will portray a level of honesty you won’t be able to escape.

‘Adolf’ is live theatre at its best, with a theme and subject that touches us all. It is powerful, dramatic, challenging, divisive, illustrative and educational. It is utterly provocative and totally necessary. Everyone should experience it.

This debut Australia tour produced by Imagination Workshop is ideal for theatre audiences; students of drama, 20th century studies and politics; expat Brits, those with a keen eye for current affairs, and anyone keen to witness two performances with an unbeatable level of honesty, research and enthusiasm.

Churchill: Thursday 2 - Friday 3 February 2017, 8pm
