“Pravda”: we continue our online reading

The first instalment of Pravda, which we read on 21 March, proved very popular. So much so that we’ve decided to continue it at our next session on 18 April.

At the end of part 1, Lambert Le Roux, South African entrepreneur hitherto specialising in sports goods, has acquired two British newspapers, the Leicester Bystander and the the Victory. His first move is to sack all the staff and put in place new journalists and editors whose view of the world is more in line with his own. Will he be able to continue his sweep of the board unopposed, or will Andrew and Rebecca May, Elliot Fruit-Norton, Bill Smiley and the others he has displaced be able to stop him?

Join us for part 2 on 18 April at 11 am to find out.

Pravda was written by David Hare and Howard Brenton and was first produced in 1985.
