WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Clarion's attention-grabbing headlines are having devastating real-world consequences. The tabloid's editor shows no sign of relenting, but once-respected reporter Verity Stokes is tired of business as usual. It isn't long before the daily farce has twisted into something nightmarish... Clarion is a dark and timely state of the nation play about newspapers, free speech and the struggle for truth. Written by former journalist Mark Jagasia, and developed at the Arcola over two years, this is an insider's story about the ethics of the press in modern Britain.
