It's 1991 and a TV show celebrates the recently knighted 'Most Trusted Man In Britain'. But while the great and the good praise him, a different story unfolds elsewhere as one woman embarks on an extraordinary quest to be believed. 

How one man used fame, intimidation and manipulation to fool the very institutions we trust and how one brave woman fought back. Drawing extensively on material from genuine interviews, transcripts and TV shows, this is the first play to explore the most shocking sex scandal of our time: how Sir Jimmy Savile "groomed the nation".  

 

 "McGowan delivers what amounts to one of the most compelling and successful displays of stage acting I have seen. Genuinely terrifying."
Mark Lawson [New Statesman]

* The producers, in consultation with NAPAC and other survivors’ groups, have taken the decision not to release to the public any full length and front-on images of Alistair McGowan in costume as ‘Jimmy Savile’ as this has the potential to cause unnecessary distress, particularly to those who survived Savile’s abuse.
