If you’ve already booked a ticket, log onto our Living Newspaper Player to watch Edition 4.
A sideways look at the people who govern us. A space for protest. Because we can’t party without protest and we can’t heal without it either.
Edition 4 features Rishi Sunak as your romantic Indian soap hero, a teenager watching the End SARS protests play out on Instagram, a love letter to Nicola Sturgeon, an internet boy who becomes a museum piece, an unravelling of Peruvian independence day celebrations and a box office supervisor who tells it like it is.
The edition, which includes new filmed content ranging from 2 – 15 minutes, is available to watch until Sunday 18 April, allowing you to access the work much like you might an online paper – catching up on the news and supplements when it best suits you.
A different creative team are taking over the Royal Court Theatre to stage each edition.
Edition 4 cast includes: Ravi Aujla, Raj Bajaj, Bukky Bakray, Jason Barnett, Shiloh Coke, Amanda Coogan, Sutara Gayle, Ellis Howard, Genesis Lynea, Patrick McNamee, Rachael Merry, Katya Morrison, Gloria Obianyo, Ashna Rabheru, Bianca Stephens and Stephanie Street.
Facilitators for Edition 4 include Jude Christian, Jane Fallowfield, Theresa Ikoko, Myah Jeffers, Philip Morris and Lucy Morrison.
