Beat the Devil: A Covid Monologue

Availability: Ready to download

Covid-19 seems to be a sort of dirty bomb, thrown into the body to cause havoc. On the same day that the UK government finally made the first of two decisive interventions that led to a conspicuously late lockdown, David Hare contracted Covid-19. Nobody seemed to know much about it then, and many doctors are not altogether sure they know much more today.

    Short, angry, funny and devastating I love David Hare’s sardonic voice. He pulls no punches when criticizing politicians, like a grown-up Charlie Brooker. Cutting. I learned a lot.
