From The Arcola Theatre and The Royal Shakespeare Company

Can Dundar's explosive novel comes to life at the Arcola Theatre this December in #WeAreArrested. Based on Dundar's own experiences of transformative journalism #WeAreArrested is a shocking play about the search for truth behind the fog of fake news. Adapted by Pippa Hill and Sophie Ivatts, #WeAreArrested marks the first co-production between the Arcola Theatre and the Shakespeare Royal Company.

With fake news continuously clogging up our social media feeds and news broadcasts #WeaAreArrested explores how those who decide to uncover the lies struggle to push past the noise and bring the world the facts. With Dundar having been arrested for uncovering the Turkish government's involvement in the Syrian civil war, this timely production is set to be the most talked-about play of the season, don't miss it!

What is #WeAreArrested about?

When a journalist is sent a flash-drive containing shocking evidence of dodgy government activity he decides that he must publish the story, no matter what the cost. But with the very fabric of society beginning to crumble, the pursuit of justice throws our hero into dangerous territory... will the truth come out?
