This playreading is a chance for our newcomers to take the limelight. Come out and support our newest members, or long-time members as they first grace the stage!
Fleet Street, the home of British journalism, in the booming 1980s. An unscrupulous newspaper magnate. The truth distorted to turn a profit.
After Lambert Le Roux buys up London’s Fleet Street papers, he uses them to serve his political and financial whims, testing his idealistic editor’s willpower and principles. This biting satire examines the public’s hunger for sensationalism and the objectivity of our news.
Beginners are particularly encouraged to sign up for this playreading!
