What does a post-truth world look like? Do tabloids and scandal always go hand in hand? When does fake news become real news?

This Almeida Questions panel comes together on the Almeida stage to debate the power of the press and the future of ink. 

Sheila Burnett, former photographer/employee of The Sun, Jonathan Shainin of The Guardian and James Ball, journalist and author of Post Truth: How Bullshit Conquered the World,  join a discussion chaired by Charlotte Higgins, Chief Culture Writer at The Guardian.

Almeida Questions is an eclectic programme of pre-show discussions which consider some of the questions raised by the work on our stage. In each discussion, invited panellists dig into the key issues and ideas emerging from the show.
