Description

Francis Bacon could spend his mornings painting, his afternoons and evenings drinking champagne, and his nights roaming Soho in fishnet stockings and a leather coat looking for "rough trade". His lifestyle full of alcohol, gambling and homosexual promiscuity has created an iconic enigma. Pip is one of theatre's leading solo performers around the world. Possibly best known for his phenomenally successful performances of his play Adolf, Pip has toured his work in over 30 countries receiving rave reviews and awards, recently winning two international awards for his outstanding contribution to the genre of monodrama worldwide.

Wow! What a phenomenal performance. First class acting. Best solo I’ve ever seen. Can’t believe I’ve not heard of this talent until now. Definitely recommend if the description is your bag. Spellbound by this acting genius. 5 stars.

Our 4th time seeing Pip Utton perform (Before I forget...., Adolf & Einstein). Never disappoints. We knew very little about Francis Bacon but left feeling as if we'd meet him personally. Incredible stage presence as always.

If you get a chance to see Pip Utton perform, take it. This is a thoroughly engaging and entertaining performance - conveying the defiance and tragedy of Bacon beautifully.
