Quotes & Highlights
“It is not often that an actor manages so brilliantly to blur the boundaries between staged performance and reality. Pip Utton can successfully do so." -Bristish Theatre Guide 2007
“Terrifying, searing, transfixing… It is quite impossible to be anything other than totally absorbed by Utton’s performance. Adolf reaffirms the need and worth of political theatre.” -The Scotsman
“Utton’s superb performance makes the Führer tangible yet terrifying. This is an extremely clever warning. Truly powerful theatre.” -The Herald
Set in Hitler’s underground bunker in 1945 as the party faithful are gathered to hear a final address that provides revealing insights into the mesmerizing impact of his ideological justifications and ideas. The potent delivery by an utterly compelling idealist reveal both the logic of a madman and the manipulating magic of speech. The audience experiences how intolerance can be exploited and used to seduce. And then, in a startling transition to the present moment, Pip Utton’s breathtaking coup de theatre leaves the audience stunned.
