Great BritainRichard Bean, best known for farcical hit 'One Man, Two Guvnors', has penned Great Britain, a topical drama about the media starring Billie Piper and directed by the National Theatre's Nicholas Hytner. "None is more odious than Billie Piper's convincingly shallow and ruthless news editor, Paige Britain" says Dominic Cavendish, theatre critic for The Telegraph who describes this as, "required, conscience-pricking viewing". Real-life revelations about phone hacking, Rebekah Brooks, Andy Coulson and the rest have clearly inspired this anarchic satire about an ambitious young news editor who occasionally ignores her moral compass to ensure her newspaper comes up trumps in the never ending tabloid battle for readers.

About National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre

The Lyttelton is one of three theatres which make up the National Theatre. It was built in a proscenium style, but has thoroughly modern sightlines and acoustics. There really is no bad seat here as there are no circle rails or view-blocking pillars. More about National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre
