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