Synopsis


Arcola's first co-production with the Royal Shakespeare Company is a vital story about the cost of reporting the truth in the age of fake news.


When a journalist is sent a flash-drive containing critical evidence of illegal government activity, he is duty-bound to publish the story.


But with the nation destabilised and divided, a sinister power is eroding the rule of law.


What price will he pay for speaking out?


#WeAreArrested is a gripping play about fighting for truth in a network of lies.
