THE LYNCHING AT THE FRINGE

A short extract from Jackie Walker’s new one woman show, The Lynching, which was premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe on August 4. The show tells how Jackie fell victim of a vicious witch hunt because of false claims of antisemitism.
On the first night she received cheers and a standing ovation. The show will now be taken to other parts of Britain, including a special performance in Brighton in September during the Labour Party conference.
