★★★★ “Indubitably good news.” Mark Lawson, The Guardian

★★★★ “Hilarious… A cutting media satire which addresses relevant themes with aplomb.” Daily Express

He wanted to break news… but the news almost broke him.

A budding journalist lands a dream internship at the country’s biggest online news organization. That’s where he stumbles on an earth-shattering story and decides to click publish. There’s just one problem: it’s completely untrue.

A sell-out one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe before a successful UK tour, and listed as a must-see by The Guardian & The Telegraph, Fake News is the spell-binding story of our time from journalist turned actor & playwright Osman Baig.
