The Gospel According to Paul

 

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 so 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 Gospel According to Paul distils Keating’s essence into 85 minutes, focussing on key biographical milestones, landmark political achievements and personal obsessions.  It shows the man who grew up in the tribe of the Labor Party and gained an education at the knee of Jack Lang, who treated economics as an artform, and demanded we confront the wrongs of our colonial past.  

The highly anticipated new show that is taking Australia by Storm, The Gospel According to Paul asks the question - what can we learn today from this singular politician, and the momentous time in our country’s history he dominated?

"I can’t think of more entertaining or significant figure in recent Australian history with whom to spend an evening.  All iceberg, no tip.” Creator/star, Jonathan Biggins.

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

★★★★½ - The Sydney Morning Herald
