Pip Utton returns to the Town Hall after a hugely successful first visit with Churchill in 2014.
The Führer's bunker, Berlin 1945, the air is thick with betrayal as Hitler awaits the inevitable collapse of Berlin. Pip Utton, looking uncomfortably like the Fuhrer, stands before a huge Nazi banner addressing his party faithful.
He furnishes his audience with an acute anatomy of fascism; its ideological justifications; its poisoned utopias. They are in the presence of an utterly compelling idealist, helplessly drawn in to his warped logic.
Hitler's final performance seems over, he settles into pre-suicidal contemplation. We know the rest …
Utton has reserved a sting for his tale...so powerful it forces the audience to look within themselves to question their own prejudices and intolerance.
