About the Show/Event

Information for Network at Lyttelton (National Theatre), West End (Play). Network is the story of newsreader Howard Beale who becomes disenfranchised with the way that proper 'news' is being made into a circus. After being fired following ailing ratings, Beale's desperation leads him to deliver the rant of his career, threatening a bloody outcome to his final broadcast. Whilst planning his on-air suicide ratings go sky high in this cautionary tale of outrage and exploitation.
