The Clarion is Britain's worst newspaper. Morris Honeyspoon, its egomaniacal editor, spends his weekends dressed as Julius Caesar, and daily life at his beloved tabloid is a masterclass in incompetence and deceit. But the Clarion's attention-seeking headlines have real-world consequences. As political storm clouds gather over an uneasy country, it seems the paper's worst crimes are about to be exposed. While Morris frantically searches for a traitor in his midst, the once-great foreign correspondent Verity Stokes masterminds a murderous day of reckoning. . .Clarion is an urgent black comedy about free speech, nationalism and the state of the British media. Written by former journalist Mark Jagasia, who has worked for some of the UK's leading newspapers, it shines a dazzling light on the dark heart of our democracy. Following two years of development at Arcola, Clarion premieres in an explosive production from Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen.
