Kevin Toolis: Play reflects 'failures' of Gordon Brown

23 September 2013 Last updated at 10:09 BST

The play Confessions of Gordon Brown has transferred to Brighton from the Edinburgh Festival, but the Labour Party have banned it from being advertised in the main conference brochure.

Gordon Brown pollster Deborah Mattinson told the Today programme's Justin Webb, "the play shows what the public expects of politicians".

Director Kevin Toolis said the play was about "our greatest failures at prime minister in 200 years.

"He had incredibly positive qualities... yet in office he was an abysmal failure."

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 23 September 2013.
