About the Show/Event
Information for Talk Radio at Tower Theatre, Inner London (Play). This Pulitzer Prize-nominated barnstormer of a play, adapted into a major motion picture by Oliver Stone, follows the last of the great 'shock jocks', Barry Champlain, on the eve of his outrageous show's national syndication. Barry's show provides a late-night forum for right wing ideology, and he encourages his callers' extremist behaviour. But Champlain, who sees himself as a God amongst men, is forced to view his own fallibility and mortality in the light of skewed perspectives aired by the down-and-out listeners he has come to despise.
Performers Simon Vaughan (Barry Champlain), Luke Owen (Stu Noonan), Samantha Psyk (Linda MacArthur), Leon Chambers (Dan Woodruff), Yasir Senna (Sidney Greenberg), Stephen Brasher (Bernie), Leon Zedlmayer (Kent), Anna Dimdore (Dr Susan Fleming), Katherine Kennet (Rachael), Lucy Moss (Caller), Yasir Senna (Caller), Stephen Brasher (Caller), Anna Dimdore (Caller), Katherine Kennet (Caller), Rick Adamson (Continuity Announcer).
