Topless Mum In Dead Hero Shocker!!!


  • Playwright

    Ron Hutchinson 

  • Synopsis

    He chose us to tell his story because of our reputation for hard hitting investigative journalism and pursuit of the truth, no matter where it leads, or whose toes we step on. The naked girls may have had a part to play too. When a soldier returns home after serving in Afghanistan, he tempts a newspaper editor with photos that seem to expose outrageous acts of brutality. But when their authenticity is questioned, how far can the story be spun to stop the real truth leaking out?
