About This Show

Lambert Le Roux is a media magnate striding his way through the regional papers en route to Fleet Street. Turning broadsheets tabloid, dumbing down the message and stretching the acualite, Le Roux takes no prisoners as he creates a media monopoly out of a once respected industry. As we keep turning the pages to get our news, what are we reading – the truth (Pravda) or the deceptions of capitalist sharks with their eye on the bottom line rather than the by-line? Written at the height of Thatcherism, Pravda is a savage satire on using the media as a get-rich-quick fix. Poking fun at pompous egos and dangerous men, Hare and Brenton hit the target with unerring accuracy. Contains strong language. Recommended age 14+
