Jon Holmes's multi-award winning The Skewer twists itself into - and remixes - the news. This week, Suicide Squad Freedom Day and Deadpool reads a CBeebies bedtime story. The multi-award winning, 'dizzying, dazzling, haunting and moving' satirical comedy returns to twist itself into these turbulent times. With contributions from brand new and diverse audio talent, The Skewer is the sound the abyss makes as it stares back at you through your ears. 'A kind of concept album made of music and news. There's simply nothing else like it.'
