The Gospel According to Paul

Tickets

$69 available through QPAC



One of Australia’s favourite performers, Jonathan Biggins, will morph into Paul Keating – visionary, reformer and rabble-rouser – in the critically acclaimed new comedy The Gospel According to Paul at Queensland Performing Art Centre’s (QPAC) Cremorne Theatre from July 9–13.

Full of intelligence and sharpness, The Gospel According to Paul is a funny, insightful and occasionally poignant portrait of the 24th Prime Minister of Australia, the man that – as Biggins tells it – single-handedly shaped contemporary Australia. Showcasing his famous sledging, rich rhetoric and ego the size of Everest, The Gospel According to Paul distils Keating’s essence into 90 minutes, focusing on key biographical milestones, landmark political achievements and personal obsessions.

Regardless of political persuasion, this one-man show is essential post-federal election viewing for those who love an acerbic wit. 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 art form and demanded we confront the wrongs of our colonial past.

Biggins’ performance as Keating is well known from the long-running Sydney Theatre Company success story The Wharf Revue.  Beyond the canny impersonation, Biggins, like so many Australians, has long been fascinated by Keating and what Keating means to Australia.

Tickets are on sale now via qpac.com.au or 136 246.
