East Mendip Green Party presents
Not merely a reflection on how to portray this lady but a live audience with Margaret Thatcher. Pip Utton IS The ‘Iron Lady’! Saviour or witch? Love her or hate her? Not for Pip to decide, only to portray. She divided the nation like no other politician, she changed the face of British, perhaps world, politics forever and the effects of her influence and policies are still felt today.
Listen to her philosophies, her inspiration and her logic, and then take the chance to question her. Pip Utton is an Edinburgh Fringe legend and is known throughout the world for his spellbinding portrayals of Adolf, Churchill, Dickens, Casanova, Chaplin, Hancock and many others. ‘Maggie’ is probably Pip’s greatest challenge yet. Pip not only becomes Margaret Thatcher but risks taking audience questions, and answering them as Maggie!
