Delve into the quagmire of a tabloid newsroom at Kenilworth theatre
Damages by Steve Thompson, set in the offices of a tabloid newspaper, sees Baz, the newly-appointed night editor, deal with the conundrum of deciding whether to print a controversial - and potentially shocking - photograph of a celebrity that has arrived in the post anonymously.
As he seeks the help (or hindrance) of his colleagues and the paper’s lawyer - who happens to have been in a romantic relationship with Baz that did not end well - things get more and more complicated.
Director Pete Davis said: “This is a wickedly funny play that will make you think seriously about society and our attitude to the media today.”
The play runs from Monday February 3 to Saturday February 8 at 7.30pm each evening. Tickets £8.
Then on Sunday February 9 at 7.30pm, the theatre is hosting John Challis - aka ‘Boycie’ in Only Fools And Horses - for an intimate evening, during which he will no doubt have some words to say about his former colleage Roger Lloyd Pack, who played Trigger and died last week. Tickets £15.
For tickets to both shows, call 863334 between 2pm and 8pm.
