Based on interviews with leading figures in the newspaper industry in the UK, Enquirer is a theatrical investigation into the current crisis in newspaper journalism in the UK and a collaboration between National Theatre of Scotland directors, John Tiffany and Vicky Featherstone, Andrew O’Hagan, novelist, playwright, journalist and contributing editor on the London Review of Books and three leading UK journalists, Paul Flynn, Deborah Orr and Ruth Wishart. 

As we attended a preview performance we won't be reviewing it today but the production is compelling, funny, poignant and an absolute must see for anyone who has been watching the unfolding events of the News of The World's demise and the Leveson Enquiry. The set creatively utilises the space of an empty floor of an office and the stunning sunset last night provided an atmospheric backdrop to the conclusion of the piece.

With the tickets for many performances already sold out, book now while you can!
