The Assassination of Katie Hopkins

By Chris Bush and Matt Winkworth

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A shocking crime divides the nation. Fingers are pointed, sides are drawn, facts are hard to come by. Why did this happen? How do we move on? What must we remember?

It’s easy to have an opinion online, safe behind the anonymity of a keyboard, just like, share and subscribe. But as the digital mob polish their pitchforks, the world starts to question just how free should free speech be?

A smart, satirical musical by Chris Bush and Matt Winkworth about truth, celebrity and public outrage, The Assassination of Katie Hopkins premiered at Theatr Clwyd, Mold, in April 2018, directed by James Grieve.

Press Quotes

'Darkly funny… it is that rarest of things, a media satire with something new to say'

The Times

'Brilliantly written… holds a mirror to modern society that some may find discomforting at best'

British Theatre Guide

'An ambitious, idea-filled musical about public outrage and the shifting role social media plays in society... a kind of Twitter-literate London Road... Bush and Winkworth are exciting voices in musical theatre who can use the form to spark debate'

The Stage

'Chris Bush's self-referential, satirical musical explores the sensationalism of our news cycle'

Independent

'Dares the audience to think twice about their own moral judgements and consider opposing views'

WhatsOnStage

'An intelligent, thoughtful and wryly enjoyable look at the polarisation of public debate in the age of social media'
