Osman Baig in Fake News

Edinburgh Fringe hit play ‘Fake News’ to run at the Bridge Theatre in London

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.

Tickets are available here: www.bridgetheatre.co.uk
