About the show

His only props: a flask of tea, some tobacco and his trademark pipe – with easy conversational style, Tony Benn brings his unmistakable presence to his successful stage show at the Gaiety Theatre for one night only. A mix of politics, opinion and debate on various issues, followed by questions from the audience. Participation encouraged!

The evening starts with Tony been interviewed with serious discussion on such weighty themes as the recession, war and nature. Tony Benn draws on his decades of experience, his political past and his startlingly alert 86 year-old brain, throughout what is certain to be an entertaining evening. A compelling speaker by anyone's standards, he is against university fees, nuclear power and the crown powers invested in the Prime Minister. He is opposed to war, and Africa – not western muscle flexing – holds the solution to Zimbabwe's troubles. He is despairing of NATO and concerned about the rise of the far right.

Quick witted and full of insight, Tony Benn remains informed – and opinioned - on an amazing variety of subjects. And whether you agree with him or not, it is from his vast experience at the heart of national and international affairs, that he gleans his authority.

Tony Benn is fun and lovable, serious and informed, all at the same time. Describing his role as the nation's classroom assistant, he yearns to encourage. And he is an undeniable treasure of our political and national life.
