9780413584809: PRAVDA (Modern Plays)

Pravda (which means "truth") is a comedy of excess which, for the first time puts modern Fleet Street on the stage. "Pravda is an epic comedy - part The Front Page, part Arturo Ui - in which a press baron resembling Rupert Murdoch...does battle with over 30 characters as he conquers Fleet Street journalism and by implication, liberal England's soul." (Frank Rich, New York Times) This is Howard Brenton's and David Hare's first collaboration since Brassneck in 1973. It was premiered at The National Theatre in spring 1985 and awarded the London Standard Best Play Award, the City Limits Best Play Award and the Plays and Players Best Play Award.

Book Description:

An iconic play in twentieth-century British theatre, co-authored by Howard Brenton and David Hare, which looks at the corrupt world of journalism, the tabloid ethic and the media industry as a get-rich-quick-fix.
