t’s the big day. The announcement is in a few hours’ time, and film producers David and Kate anticipate their prestigious Civil War epic Catch Me Some Freedom will be nominated for plenty of Goldies. Until, however, they learn that the film’s heroic lead role, played by a white actor, was in real life actually Black. Fearing an intense and career-jeopardizing backlash, David and Kate frantically try to keep the film from getting any attention whatsoever.
Presented by critically acclaimed young company Black Bat Productions, writer/director Nathaniel Brimmer-Beller’s Press comes to London after a sold-out premiere run at the 2021 Edinburgh Fringe, described as “genius” with “a masterclass of a twist” (★★★★★ - Broadway Baby) and “a wonderful set-up” that “delivers in every manner” (★★★★★ - The Violet Curtain).
"Come see this “timely piece of satire if there ever was one,” (★★★★ - The Wee Review)
“some of the loudest laughs of this year’s Fringe” (★★★★½ - Theatre Scotland).
Performance dates: March 4th,5th &6th
