In a time of political turmoil, an ambitious young journalistic plots to bring down a corrupt politician, and ends up toppling more than a government.
Emer Hackett is a fearless and determined investigative reporter – her target is the Taoiseach, Manny Spillane, a wily political survivor.
Their paths cross in the ruins of an old theatre, set to be the site for a banking centre, which promises to bring wealth to the Irish economy as well to Spillane and his cohorts.
What Emer uncovers sparks a fury of consequences for her newspaper, her colleagues and the political framework of the country.
A new ensemble comedy from the creators of the much-loved Dublin By Lamplight, The Corn Exchange look at what Ireland might have become, 50 years after its independence.
