During a Radio 3 live broadcast a private detective stuns the audience by accusing a best-selling author of murder. The author denies the accusation and sets out to prove her innocence to the audience. A comic drama by Owen Whitelaw exploring the impact of fake news – both in the past and in the present. Owen is an actor turned playwright. His first play, Thole, a surreal black comedy about a dysfunctional family, was recently commissioned by the Traverse.
This performance is 1 of 9 brand new radio plays that will be recorded in front of a live audience, for broadcast in September. This is a unique opportunity to experience the thrill of a studio environment, complete with a full cast and live sound effects.
Each recording is followed by a Q&A with the creative team.
