Twitstorm written by Chris England
Published by Josef Weinberger Plays
From the publishers:
Guy Manton is a national treasure, the much-loved host of a caustic television panel show, until a throwaway remark is inadvertently shared with the whole world, and before Guy knows what is happening he is being battered by the Twitstorm
Twitstorm is a hilarious exploration of what can happen when the self-righteousness of social media gets out of hand …
Chris England co-wrote (with Arthur Smith) and appeared in the original production of An Evening With Gary Lineker in Edinburgh and the West End. The play was nominated for an Olivier Award and was made into a TV movie starring Clive Owen. His next play, Breakfast With Jonny Wilkinson, enjoyed successful runs at the Menier Chocolate Factory and in Edinburgh, and was also made into a film.
He appeared in the Oscar-nominated Indian cricket epic Lagaan, Once Upon a Time in India, and wrote a best-selling book, Balham to Bollywood, about the experience. Other writing and performing includes the spoof “soccumentary” television movie Bostock’s Cup, the films A Man Called Sarge and Bose: The Forgotten Hero and on television The Preventers, Blind Man, Murder Most Horrid, Dare to Believe and Harry Hill’s TV Burp.
