Director ..... Mary Peate

Playwright and journalist PETER JUKES is best known for his book about the hacking trial, BEYOND CONTEMPT, (which he also dramatised for Radio 4); and more recently for his award-winning podcast and subsequent book UNTOLD: THE DANIEL MORGAN MURDER UNCOVERED.

SIR LENNY HENRY has an astonishing list of achievements to his credit: he is one of Britain's best known comedians; an award-winning actor (recently starring in The Comedy of Errors at The National Theatre, Fences at the Duchess Theatre, and 'The Resitable Rise of Arturo Ui' at the Donmar); co-founder of Comic Relief and a Trustee of the National Theatre, not to mention his campaigning activity for equal employment opportunities in Broadcasting. Added to all of this, he is making a name for himself as a playwright - he has written four plays for Radio 4 (with another in the pipeline) and his autobiographical BBC1 drama 'Danny and the Human Zoo' won the Screen Nation Film and Television Award in 2016.
