“Still white-hot with relevance.”

“Richard Bean’s script is unforgiving, a furious flurry of blow in all directions. Press, police, politicians. None are safe for a moment.”

“Nicholas Hytner’s production bounds along like the class clown, sticking two fingers — and often one — up at a range of targets.”

“Lucy Punch gives a terrifically ballsy turn in the role”

The Evening Standard

“Bean provides a teeming behind-the-scenes portrait of the workings of a modern tabloid newsroom in all its amorality and hypocrisies.”
