The Gospel According to Paul

Presented by HOTA and Soft Tread

Written by and starring Jonathan Biggins

Sat 25 May
The Gospel According to Paul

The Gospel According to Paul

One of Australia’s favourite performers, Jonathan Biggins, is Paul Keating - visionary, reformer and rabble-rouser - in the return of the 2019 smash hit comedy, The Gospel According to Paul. Full of 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. 

Like so many Australians, Jonathan 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 Gospel According to Paul distils Keating’s essence into 90-minutes, focusing on key biographical milestones, landmark political achievements and personal obsessions. 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 artform, and demanded we confront the wrongs of our colonial past. 

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

★★★★★ ‘A hilariously funny, astute, inspiring show’ Limelight 
★★★★½ ‘Biggins’ finest work’ Sydney Morning Herald  
★★★★½ ‘A rare treat’ Stagenoise
