Yet the sheer outlandish lunacy of this history-re-imagining ‘newsical’ makes it fab fun.

Buerk was a newsreader whose life is drastically – with a willful disregard for the truth – reappropriated for this ‘inspired by’ production. Fantastically off the wall, whether you saw Buerk’s 999 emergency rescue docudrama TV show or not.
