Currently headline news and soon to be adapted into a primetime ITV drama, we are delighted to offer you a true, jaw-dropping and gripping account that really has captured the attention of the general public - and is now the subject of this, an equally compelling stage show.
Journalist/broadcaster Nick Wallis (BBC1’s ‘The One Show’, Channel 5’s ‘Criminals Caught on Camera’ and regular news reader/reporter for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5) recently released a best-selling book that became serialised both by BBC Radio 4, The Sunday Times and The Daily Mail.
Nick’s story definitively chronicles a scandal that has been described as one of the most widespread and significant miscarriages of justice in UK legal history – ‘The Great Post Office Scandal’.
He takes us from the ill-fated deal that brought Horizon into existence, through years of half-truths and obstruction, to the tearful scenes at the Court of Appeal this year. He exposes the secrecy and mistrust at the heart of the story, and the impact that had on the victims.
He also chronicles how this story's hero, Alan Bates, started as a lone public voice of dissent but went on to beat the Post Office - against overwhelming odds - at two of the highest courts in the land and win some redress for the victims.
Nick will be lending his natural flair to host the whole intriguing affair. He will also be reading from his book followed by a Q&A section with the audience after.
