A Broadcast Coup

Ensemble Theatre is thrilled to stage the long-awaited world premiere of writer and broadcaster, Melanie Tait’s thought-provoking, sharp comedy, A BROADCAST COUP, from 26th January to 4th March 2023.

A major highlight of the 2023 Sydney Festival, A BROADCAST COUP incisively delves into the abuse of power and lack of accountability from controversial public figures.

Cut-throat journalist Jez Connell is out for her next sting. It’s been a year since she brought down one of TV’s most lauded stars for behaving badly and now she’s got Michael King, the top-rated darling of public radio, in her sights. This time, it’s personal.

With the loyalty of his longstanding radio show producer wavering, and a charting ex-media podcaster eager to take the mic off Mike, has the plug been pulled on Michael King’s career?
