Harlow Playhouse
Sat March 24th

IT was fitting that Pip Utton’s one man performance of Churchill came to the Harlow Playhouse on March 24th, 2017, the 70th anniversary of Harlow New Town. You may or may not know, that Churchill was Harlow’s MP and a plaque adorns the outside of the Victoria Hall Theatre in Old Harlow.

One of the strength’s of Utton’s performance is the way he is able to mesh together the key historical events and periods. With just an hour to work with he goes from cradle to the plinth seamlessly.

Utton gets all the key Churchill lines in (dead birds, arsenic, education, empty taxis etc) as well as moving to sombre moments such as Gallipoli and the Battle of Britain.

The audience clearly enjoyed and were impressed by Utton’s performance. They went away with the period in history and one of the great personalities in our history reinforced.
