The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Critical commentary on mankind's hypocrisy
This article is from 2010.
Writer/actor Pip Utton follows his challenging one-man shows Adolf, Chaplin and Bacon with another deftly scripted and vividly performed drama, this one about Victor Hugo’s deformed Parisian bell-ringer. Taking the form of a monologue delivered by Quasimodo from his lofty lair, it’s the harrowing and moving story of his life, but also a critical commentary on mankind’s hypocrisy and cruelty and our obsession with skin-deep beauty.
