‘A play for today. The blazingly talented James Graham has penned a super, soaraway smash.’
Fleet Street. 1969. The Sun rises. A young and rebellious Rupert Murdoch asks the impossible and launches The Sun’s first editor’s quest: to give the people what they want. No matter the cost.
Following a sell-out season at the Almeida, Ink, written by James Graham (This House) and directed by Rupert Goold (King Charles III), transfers to the Duke of York’s Theatre for a strictly limited season. With a cast featuring Bertie Carvel (Doctor Foster, Matilda) and Richard Coyle (Don Carlos, Prince of Persia), this ruthless, red-topped new play leads with the birth of this country’s most influential newspaper.
‘A huge 5-star hit’
‘Hold the front page: this one's a smasher’
‘Delivered with wit, flair and vivid humanity, it’s a hell of a story’
