BLACK AND WHITE THEATRE FESTIVAL

Pip Utton

ADOLF

One-man play

Translator Hannes Villemson

Producer Ervin Õunapuu

Played by Indrek Taalmaa

This provocative one-man play by playwright-actor Pip Utton emerged a few years ago as one of the biggest surprises and hits at the Edinburgh Theatre Festival. As known, the Estonian audience enjoyed the presentation by Pip Utton in 2000 at the Baltoscandal Theatre Festival.

As the title hints Adolf Hitler himself will appear before the audience in this play.However, one should definitely not look for historic authenticity here.The main postulates of der Führer's ideology such as ethnic and minority issues, the limits of tolerance, manipulation techniques  will be analysed from today's point of view.

Premiere was on 10 September 2005 in Püssirohukelder (Gun Powder Cellar)
