The Bridge Theatre will present Edinburgh Fringe hit play Fake News for two performances this September.
Written and performed by Osman Baig, a former journalist turned actor and playwright, the one-man-show centres on a budding young journalist who lands a dream internshipat the country’s biggest online news organization. There, he stumbles on an earth-shattering story and – against better judgement – decides to click publish. There’s just one problem: the story is completely untrue.
Whatever you think about the news or those who make it, prepare to think again – this one-man show will force you to ask if there really is such a thing as bad publicity.
The piece premiered at theKing’s Head Theatre in 2018 before transferring to venues including Theatre 503, Tara Arts & Waterloo East Theatre, then selling-out at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019 with Assembly.
Directed byOliver Stephens, Fake News is at The Bridge Theatre on17 and 18 September 2021 at 7.30pm.
