About this show

‘A timely look at the tangled relationship between the press, politicians and the police. Barbed and very funny’ - Evening standard

Great Britain transfers to the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 10 September, following a sold out run at the National Theatre.

Richard Bean’s fast, furious and foul-mouthed new play is an anarchic satire about the press, the police and the political establishment. Welcome to The Free Press, a tabloid newspaper locked in a never-ending battle for more readers.

‘The most detailed stage satire I have ever seen – closely in tune with its subject matter and its times.’ - Financial Times

‘Laughter-making on an industrial scale.’ - Independent

Running time: 2hrs 45mins.

Suitable for 15+, strong language from the outset
