Doug Lucie's biting satire that attacks the mercenary agenda in the UK's media.
Directed by Sebastien Blanc. Designed by Kev Rice.
Set in the 1990s, amidst the wedding celebrations of a media mogul's daughter, the axe is about to be wielded. The old-guard of a recently taken-over broadsheet paper are presented with the dilemma of yielding to the philosophy of the new regime, thus compromising their own professional and moral values, or be ousted from it.
Unmasking a heightened world of seduction and power, The Shallow End walks the stark moral battle lines that were drawn at the dawn of a new age in British media.
