The master of theatrical portraits, Pip Utton, presents not merely a reflection on how to portray this lady, but an extraordinary live audience with Margaret Thatcher. Pip is ‘The Iron Lady’!

Saviour or witch? Love her or hate her? It’s not for Pip to decide, only to portray. She divided the nation 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 once again to her philosophies, her inspiration and her logic, and then take the opportunity to ask her a question as Pip’s acclaimed play transforms into an ‘audience with’.

Pip Utton is an Edinburgh Festival legend, winning the coveted Stage Award for Acting Excellence amongst many others, and is internationally acclaimed for his spellbinding portrayals of Adolf, Churchill, Dickens, Casanova, Chaplin, Hancock, The Pope and more. ‘Maggie’, however, is probably Pip’s greatest challenge yet as he not only becomes Margaret Thatcher but risks taking audience questions, and answering them as the lady herself!
