Latest Review: "Absolutely brilliant. Don't miss this superb production, you'll be sorry if you do!Sadly, ..."

Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown is the focus of this enticing show at the Ambassador’s Theatre this June. It will be a chance to look at the leadership of Brown all over again, whilst also getting into the mindset of a man that once led the United Kingdom.

Ian Grieve portrays Gordon Brown in the production and he will allow audiences to look behind the doors of Downing Street and glimpse at one man’s desire to rise to the top and whose leadership of a nation went wrong. With betrayals and ruthlessness he managed to get to the top, but Brown’s legacy would eventually be one of defeat.

Grieve is an actor, musician and director whose work has been seen since the 1990s and he has worked in Scottish theatre and at venues like the Bristol Old Vic. In portraying the former Prime Minister Gordon Brown he works under the direction of Kevin Toolis and first presented the production at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Toolis has worked as a documentary film maker and as a screenwriter in Hollywood.

Following the production’s original appearance at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe it appeared at the West End’s Trafalgar Studios in September 2013. But now it returns and audiences can see it at the Ambassador’s Theatre – the ongoing home of Stomp – on Tuesday and Wednesdays from Tuesday 3rd June 2014.
