Tell all the truth, but tell it slant.

Dara and Vick have a history. Dara is the veteran press officer, Vick the rookie struggling through an uncomfortable first day. They thought the most complicated thing they would be facing was their own feelings and a tricky news story about cats, but a sudden crisis changes everything.

Emotions set to the side, they have no choice but to work together to deal with a raft of journalists. But how do they get the real story out when flashy lies are so much more attractive?

Tell It Slant was written without specifying a gender, and the actors playing Dara and Vick will alternate roles throughout the run, showing how the story and characters change, or don’t, when one is a man and one is a woman.

A gender-switching, romantic black-comedy about fake news in a crisis.

Tell It Slant is at The Hope Theatre 25th February to 14th march 2020.
