A sideways look at the people who govern us. A space for protest. Because we can’t party without protest and we can’t heal without it either.
Edition 4 will feature Rishi Sunak as your romantic Indian soap hero, sign language interpreters prepping for a Covid briefing at the Northern Irish Assembly, a teenager watching the End SARS protests play out on Instagram, a love letter to Nicola Sturgeon, an internet boy who becomes a museum piece, an unravelling of Peruvian independence day celebrations and a box office supervisor who tells it like it is.
Edition 4 cast includes: Ravi Aujla, Raj Bajaj, Bukky Bakray, Jason Barnett, Shiloh Coke, Amanda Coogan, Sutara Gayle, Ellis Howard, Genesis Lynea, Patrick McNamee, Rachael Merry, Katya Morrison, Gloria Obianyo, Ashna Rabheru, Bianca Stephens and Stephanie Street.
Edition 4 of Living Newspaper will launch on Tuesday 6 April (following the bank holiday weekend), with The Front Page performed live to an online audience at 5.30pm. The event will be a shared experience with audiences invited to have their cameras on and be part of the digital room.
