ABSTRACT
YE gods, a play about Gordon Brown. The Confessions of Gordon Brown, penned by Emmynominated writer Kevin Toolis, will have its world premiere at the Edinburgh Festival before coming to London and the Labour Party conference. "In a candid portrait of life inside Downing Street, Gordon Brown hilariously exposes the darkest secrets of being Prime Minister, the stab-in-the-back plottings, the betrayals and most importantly — the hair gel," promises Toolis of his one-man play starring Ian Grieve. "Love him or loathe him, Gordon Brown was our greatest failure at being Prime Minister in 200 years." But how can any actor convey Brown? This is surely a role which combines Lear, Macbeth and Prospero.
