Pip Utton: Maggie
Not merely a reflection on how to portray her, but a live audience in her company. Saviour or witch? Love her or hate her? She divided the UK 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.
Delivering a speech, just as tension reaches boiling point, Margaret Thatcher steps away from her pedestal and addresses you. This is the real reason you have come to watch this show. Raise your hand and wait your turn to ask The Iron Lady the questions that have burned you for years.
Some answers will make your blood boil. Some of them will make you laugh. But every single answer will portray an honesty that you won’t be able to escape.
Pip Utton is a Fringe legend and has won awards around the world for his spellbinding portrayals of Adolf, Churchill, Dickens, Casanova, Chaplin, Hancock and many others. ‘Maggie’ is probably Pip’s greatest challenge yet.

‘An almost completely unscripted hour masterfully evokes the voice and thoughts of Margaret Thatcher’ The Stage
‘The mannerisms, the voice, the appearance, the immense and detailed research were all strikingly noteworthy but what I, as an actor, couldn’t believe I was seeing was the heart. The heart of Mrs. Thatcher, the essence. Answering questions from the audience from politics to poetry, to her “wicked” lack of humour, she was ever present, entirely consistent, immensely funny and absolutely real.’ FringeReview
