Scroll down for a first look at the world premiere of the explosive Fleet Street black comedy CLARION! Press night is next Wednesday 22 April at 7.30pm.

Two of the most highly acclaimed British actors of their generation, Clare Higgins and Greg Hicks, are to star in the World Premiere of Clarion, set in the office of Britain's worst newspaper, the Daily Clarion. The rest of the cast are: Peter Bourke, Jim Bywater, Jim Dunkley, Laura Smithers and Ryan Wichert.

Written by Mark Jagasia, who worked as a journalist for several Fleet Street newspapers, Clarion is an urgent black comedy about free speech, nationalism and the state of the British media in 2015.

It will get a 5-week season at Arcola Theatre now through Saturday 16 May in an explosive production from Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen. Also on the creative team are designer Anthony Lamble, lighting designer David Howe, and music & sound designer Neil McKeown.
