Fleet Street. 1969. The Sun rises.

James Graham’s ruthless, red-topped new play leads with the birth of this country’s most influential newspaper – when a young and rebellious Rupert Murdoch asked the impossible and launched its first editor’s quest, against all odds, to give the people what they want.

Writer James Graham (This House) makes his Almeida debut with this World Premiere directed by Rupert Goold.

Ink transferred to the Duke of York’s Theatre in the West End and ran from 9th September 2017 to the 6th January 2018.
