A revealed identity leads to an impossible decision. Journalist Alice Kennings grapples with how to act after uncovering the identity of an alt-right podcast host calling for violence against the media. Based on real events, White Heat is a play about all the things we justify to ourselves. Written by Graham Isador (VICE, GQ) and directed by Dora Award winner Jill Harper (Pool No Water).

Written by Graham Isador; Directed by Jill Harper; Performed by Makambe Simamba and Tim Walker; Sound Design by Christopher Ross-Ewart
