'The Destroyed Room' review or 'Newsnight with lots of wine, guilt and water.'
The Destroyed Room, Vanishing Point

Written for Time Out
We’re watching ‘Newsnight’ (or something similar) being recorded live in a fancy living room. The topic of debate is how we respond to human suffering abroad – only the conversation keeps stalling. That might be down to the distracting presence of a studio audience, the copious amounts of wine consumed by all three participants, or the imposing video feed that flickers overhead. Whatever the reason, this debate is veering wildly off track – and we’ve only ourselves to blame.
