The Gospel According to Paul

06 Apr 2019 - Capitol Theatre

Presented By Soft Tread

All iceberg, no tip.

One of Australia’s favourite performers, Jonathan Biggins, is Paul Keating – visionary, reformer and rabble-rouser – in a highly anticipated new comedy, The Gospel According to Paul Full intelligence and wit, The Gospel According to Paul is a funny, insightful and occasionally poignant portrait of Paul Keating the man that - as he tells it – single-handedly shaped contemporary Australia.

 

Jonathan Biggins’ performance as Paul Keating is well known from the long-running Sydney Theatre Company success story, The Wharf Revue.  Beyond the canny impersonation, Jonathan, like many Australians, has long been fascinated by Keating and what Keating means to Australia. Showcasing his eviscerating wit, rich rhetoric and ego the size of Everest the comedy focuses on Keating’s key biographical milestones, landmark political achievements and personal obsessions. 

"Biggins almost out-Keaters Keating...If only we had someone this clever running the country." - Lloyd Bradford Syke, Crikey

Biggins asks the question - what can we learn today from this singular politician, and the momentous time in our country’s history he dominated?

 

FROM THE CREATOR

In all my years writing and performing for the Wharf Revue, one character has remained a constant favourite of the audience: Paul Keating. I can’t think of more entertaining or significant figure in recent Australian history with whom to spend an evening. All iceberg, no tip.
