‘Come and meet the 42nd President as he cuts loose and shoots straight from the hip in his own fantasy TED talk! From the Trojan Wars to the future of democracy, his dreams, regrets, hopes and passions, Occupy, Hillary and Monica… Beloved stained icon and reviled Slick Willy. A life epic in its own right, but what will be Bubba’s final act? Can the Comeback Kid come back?

Classic gothic fiction with strong Faustian themes, this once controversial piece of writing examines themes of hedonism and morality in Victorian society.” (Read More)

Written and performed by Pip Utton, this enchanted hour moves swiftly beyond caricature and becomes an enthralling exploration of the life and character of a capricious historical giant.” (Read More)
