CLICK FOR REVIEW

 A present-day affair set in a corporate world, Whistleblower is a tale where personal values conflict with the possibility of serious financial gain, and where individuals find that they question themselves and each other. A "whodunit" without a murder, this is a story of trust and mistrust, a story about when it's right to be honest and when it's necessary to deceive.

It is 2014, and a UK defence company is finalising a tender to win a contract from a threatened African Republic. If the contract can't be secured then the company may well go bankrupt! The management team has decided that it has to win the business. But the deal can only be finalised by the making of an illegal payment to the key decision-maker. How does the company ensure that it wins the business it needs to survive? Can it hide a breach of the international business code of ethics? And when an insider "blows the whistle" to the Serious Fraud Office, what other secrets will be revealed? 

Whistleblower is the writing debut of Adrian Harding, who has been involved with the local theatre community for over 32 years.
