A Broadcast Coup by Melanie Tait

Friday 17 April 2020 to Saturday 23 May 2020 (DAILY event)

Overview

Tune into a buzzing new comedy pulling the plug on an antiquated media industry.

Cut-throat journalist Jez Connell is out for her next sting. It’s been a year since she brought down one of television's most lauded stars and now she’s got Michael King, the darling of public radio, in her sights. This time, it’s personal. Michael is at the top of the ratings with his popular morning political program, a shelf of bestselling history books and an over-flowing dinner speaking schedule. He’s a Walkley award-winning national treasure. Nothing can bring him down … expect maybe a #metoo scandal.

With the loyalty of his longstanding producer (the real brains behind his success) wavering and a hip up-and-coming podcaster eager to take the mike, has the plug been pulled on Michael’s career? Writer Melanie Tait and director Priscilla Jackman reunite for another hilarious production featuring the impeccable comedic skills of Amber McMahon.
