Benet's production of Steve Thompson's DAMAGES- the play's first revival since its Bush Theatre premiere in 2004- played at the Old Red Lion in London, for which he directed the hit production of HOWIE THE ROOKIE in the spring.

Every paper wants a scoop.

Every paper wants exposure.

But when a late night news desk's big scoop is to be the exposure of a children's TV star's breasts it's not just reputations and careers that could end up damaged.

And there's more to these breasts than meets the eye.

Played in real time, DAMAGES is a fiercely witty satire of the tabloid food chain and the ravenous appetites that sustain it.

The production won many glowing reviews and defied the odds of a July run by playing to good audience numbers. Author Steve Thompson was one of the many who gave generous praise to this pacy staging of an entertaining light play about the relationship between celebrities and tabloids.
