Do you hate reality television? Perhaps it's your guilty pleasure? Do you know why you watch it? 'Media Release' probes the relentless rise of instant celebrity culture, its stars, the entertainment industry, social media and the effect that all this has on our psyches.

April is a young aspiring actress who realises one morning that all her dreams could be fulfilled via the launchpad of reality TV. Between interviews with her super-casual yet cutthroat agent, parasitic journalists and ruthless audition panels, April is forced to delve deeper into what an audience really wants to see.

April’s journey raises questions about the portrayal of women in the media, and how their worst qualities are exploited in the name of entertainment. Whether it’s competing for the affections of men, or letting her body take centre stage over her talents, April must confront these barriers if she’s truly going to make it.

With a gripping storyline, concise comic timing and cleverly reworked pop songs, 'Media Release' is both humorous and thought-provoking.
