Fake News

A story of journalism and the birth of fake news

Thursday 11 - Saturday 13 April 2019, 7.30pm


Everyone these days has an opinion on Trump, Brexit and “fake news”. But get the real story from journalist-turned-playwright Osman Baig in his pioneering, five-star-rated show.

 

A budding journalist lands a dream internship at the country's biggest online news company. But a few months into the role - in a hasty bid to impress his boss - he inadvertently publishes a catastrophic error, finding himself in a position no journalist ever should be in: the creator of fake news.

 

Is he about to lose it all - or is there no such thing as bad publicity?

 

Fake News is the very real story of how our media is created and how it's responding to the extraordinary times we live in.

 

Described as "funny, original & thought-provoking" (London Theatre Reviews) & "sharp-witted & expertly crafted" (Entertainment Focus), Fake News is performed by actor, writer and journalist Osman Baig, who brings unparalleled insight from his decade-long career at some of the world's biggest news organisations.

 

"One-man shows are rarely as engaging as Baig's colourful rollercoaster ride" (South West Londoner). 

 

This is the story you don't want to miss.
