Pip Utton is one of the world's finest and most celebrated solo theatre performers. Over the past two decades he has written and performed some of the most internationally successful monodramas, receiving five-star reviews, and awards, and recognition. Reviewers have called him ‘a legend’, ‘a star’, a ‘cult’ and a ‘National Treasure’.
Pip’s performances are renowned for his ability to break the fourth wall, speaking directly with the audience, involving them with the emotions, making them an essential part of the performance.
Pip has toured in over 26 countries and has been translated into 8 languages. He aims to write and produce a new piece each year. Some remain active for several years and others are laid to rest sooner. Pip also performs with larger casts. In 2014 he played the lead in a new play by a leading Cypriot playwright Paris Erotokritou; ‘A Slight Risk’ at the Kypria International Festival, in April 2015 made his London Albert Hall debut playing the lead in Mark McGann’s new musical ‘Backstories’ to an audience of over 4,000! So, he’s always open to offers. In 2015 Pip won the Stage Special Award for Excellence and the Fringereview.co.uk Award for Outstanding Theatre, 2016, the Valery Kashanov Award for his influence on international monodrama and in 2018 a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Turkish Ministry of Culture for his contribution to world theatre. In 2019 a book celebrating his career was published in Poland by Wrostja, the world’s oldest monodrama organisation.
Pip lives in Somerset with his very patient wife Nicky and wrote the above in the third person, sounds less boastful!

First attempt at looking a little like Alfred Hitchcock. This is now in the writing stage having completed the first period of research. A complicated and troubled man and so lots to work with.
First quote from the man
"A husband understands every word his wife doesn't say"
Long way to go yet. First performance not scheduled until 2021.
