Tom William Mitchell works for a broadcast news company. Employed for his idealistic ‘truth-saying’, ex-Survivor contestant Tom William Mitchell works his way up from the copy room to the interview couch in a matter of weeks. But will climbing the ladder in a post-truth world force him to lose touch with his true convictions?
Tom William Mitchell is a razor-sharp satire about our hyper-mediatised society. The play examines the rise of contemporary populism and the ever-changing media landscape via a slick aesthetic which mashes up TV news and contemporary theatre practice. Tom William Mitchell is a cutting-edge piece of theatre for the here and now
