Jamie has just scored her dream job as a theatre critic for a major newspaper. When her fledgling playwright friend Emma begs her to review her newest play, Jamie figures it’s an easy favour. Until she discovers that the play is terrible and she’s confronted with an impossible choice; be honest and potentially ruin her friend’s career or lie and ruin her own before it’s even begun.
Fast, fierce and funny; The Critic is an incisive look into the world of theatre, criticism and just how worthwhile our opinions actually are.
