‘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 (The Associate, The Lover) this ruthless, red-topped new play leads with the birth of this country’s most influential newspaper.
Ink in the West End is produced by the Almeida Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions.
