DAMAGES

Sold out

'It's not in the public interest just because it interests the public'

Deep in the bowels of a tabloid newspaper office, the clock is ticking with only an hour left before the presses have to roll?

A controversial photo of a topless children's TV star has mysteriously turned up. Who sent it? Why? And is it really all it seems? This sensational photo poses a moral conundrum, exposing deceit, lies and a darker secret that mustn't be revealed at any cost.

Front page scoop or crushing libel settlement in disguise? They must decide now: play it safe, or publish and be damned. It's time for the ink to hit the paper and the shit to hit the fan…

Is a celebrity entitled to privacy or are they fair game for feeding time at the tabloid zoo? Damages is a witty and contemporary (im)morality tale of power-hungry hacks, suicidal sub editors and razor-sharp lawyers, trying to put the past and the paper to bed.
