By Jonathan Biggins One of Australia’s favourite performers, Jonathan Biggins, is Paul Keating – visionary, reformer and rabble-rouser. Beyond the canny impersonation (made famous through his annual turns in The Wharf Revue), Biggins, like so many Australians, has long been fascinated by Keating and what Keating means to Australia. Showcasing the eviscerating wit, rich rhetoric and ego the size of Everest, he now distils Keating’s essence into this stunning new play, focussing on key biographical milestones, landmark political achievements and personal obsessions. It reveals the man who grew up in the tribe of the Labor Party and gained an education at the knee of Jack Lang, who treated economics as an artform, and demanded we confront the wrongs of our colonial past. Full of intelligence and humour, this is a funny, insightful and occasionally poignant portrait of Paul Keating – the man that, as he tells it, single-handedly shaped contemporary Australia.
