Great Britain at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in the West End

Great Britain at the Theatre Royal Haymarket

Richard Bean’s fast and furious new play is an anarchic and foul-mouthed satire about the press, the police and the political establishment.

Lucy Punch plays Paige Britain, the ambitious young news editor of The Free Press, a tabloid newspaper locked in a never-ending battle for more readers.
