About the Show
It's ...... the stage adaptation of the libel trial of Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney.
In late 2019, Coleen Rooney - the wife of footballer Wayne Rooney - published a tweet that set social media ablaze. She suspected a follower of her private Instagram account was leaking stories about her to the tabloid press, so she laid traps - in the form of limited-view Instagram stories - to smoke out the identity of the leaker. In the now-infamous tweet, she revealed the details of her investigation and the account she believed to be behind the tabloid leaks: "It’s ..........Rebekah Vardy’s account.". Vardy subsequently sued Rooney for libel, which lead to a 2022 trial in the High Court of Justice.
This production, written by Liv Hennessy, is based on the transcripts of the trial and details how the trial played out in court over one extraordinary week.
