Stunning the Punters  



Stunning the Punters eFlyer

Three stories of imagination run wild!

An out-of-work actor's frustrations explode over breakfast, an ex-skinhead recalls an exuberant racist graffiti spree with a ghostly twist and a would-be suicide sees a lost paradise and returns with a timeless message of hope for our uncaring world....

"This is the craft of acting carried to a pinnacle of virtuosity."
SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY

26 years ago, in the hot and hopeful summer after the fall of the Berlin Wall and before Saddam burned the oil wells of Kuwait, audiences and critics in Brighton, Edinburgh and London rushed to witness a young actorís stunning solo debut...

"Stunning the Punters is a breathtakingly arrogant name to give to a show; it is also entirely accurate."
THE INDEPENDENT

"Stunning the Punters is a compelling piece of theatre: make haste to catch it!"
THE TIMES

Stunning the Punters (& Other Stories) is one man on a bare stage giving a bravura high-energy performance in three tales of imagination run wild: Master of Cafť Society by Steven Berkoff; Stunning the Punters by Robert Sproat and Dillonís own adaptation of The Dream of a Ridiculous Man by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

"George Dillon is one of the most uncompromisingly compelling performers I have seen. He has the vocal precision of a Gielgud, the physical presence and skill of Marceau, and a heart, mind, and attack that are all his own."
THE GUARDIAN

Since 1990, George Dillon has given nearly one thousand solo performances in seven highly acclaimed shows, including Judgement, Berkoff's Hell and Other Tales, The Remembrance of Edgar Allan Poe, Berkoff's Graft - Tales of an Actor (for which he won a Herald ĎAngelí award in 2000), The Gospel of Matthew and Dillonís own play The Man Who Was Hamlet.

"It meant paying, but three days after going to see Stunning the Punters I went to see it again. This is one-man theatre at its most intelligent and most powerful.  Don't wait to be told about it, or to read another critical paean - go and see for yourself."
WHAT'S ON IN LONDON

In interview and in his autobiography Free Association, Steven Berkoff has described George as:

"The best example of someone to watch how to perform...
I was most proud of my written work when I saw him." STEVEN BERKOFF
