Synopsis


A young journalist lands a dream internship at the country's biggest online news company.


But a few months into the role - in a hasty bid to find a major scoop that will go viral - he inadvertently publishes a catastrophic error that risks unhinging his entire career.


Is he about to lose it all - or is there no such thing as bad publicity.


Fake News is the very real story of how our media is created and how it's responding to the extraordinary times we live in.


This five-star show, described as "Funny, original and thought provoking" (London Theatre Reviews) & "Sharp-witted and expertly crafted" (Entertainment Focus) is told by actor, writer and journalist Osman Baig, who brings unparalleled insight from his decade-long career at some of the world's biggest news organisations. "One-man shows are rarely as engaging as Baig's colourful rollercoaster ride" (South West Londoner).


This is the story you don't want to miss.
