Paul Webster’s one man show Hitler Alone at the Octagon Theatre

Paul Webster as Adolf Hitler ....

Paul Webster’s one man show, Hitler Alone, explores the man behind the myth and more disturbingly, the psychology of one of the most infamous and reviled characters in history.

From the regrets of his youth, through his hopes and aspiration as a man, to his failure as the Führer, Hitler Alone gives an insight into the life of one of the darkest figures of the 20th century.

Paul Webster’s chilling one man show on Adolf Hitler was last performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2008, and made it onto the Best of the Fest list. In Hitler Alone, Webster completely inhabits his character and delivers a tour-de-force performance which has been widely praised by critics.

Paul worked for the Royal Shakespeare Company for 16 years where his major credit included Gremio in The Taming of the Shrew. He has also worked for the Library Theatre where he played the parts of Hamlet in Hamlet and Teddy in The Homecoming directed by our very own John Blackmore, Richard III and Sir Thomas More in A Man for All Seasons.

Paul Webster returns to the Octagon in March appearing in Harold Pinter’s post-war masterpiece The Caretaker in the role of Davies.

Hitler Alone takes place on Thursday 12 February, 7.30pm, tickets are £9 (£7 concessions) and are available from the Octagon Ticket Office on 01204 520661 or online at
