A sell-out show at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe, listed as a Must-See by The Guardian and Telegraph, Fake News is the story of our time from journalist turned actor and playwright Osman Baig.

A budding young journalist lands a dream internship at the country’s biggest online news organization. There, he stumbles on an earth- shattering story and – against better judgement – decides to click publish.

There’s just one problem: the story is completely untrue.

Whatever you think about the news or those who make it, prepare to think again – in this one-man show that will force you to ask if there really is such a thing as bad publicity. If you think Fake News is over just because the Trump presidency is, maybe you were following the wrong story all along?
