4.6 (5) · Fringe Theatre, Contemporary, New Writing

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.

Critic reviews

Bertie Carvel is brilliant as a mephistophelian Rupert Murdoch.

Time Out

Carvel is a natural as the media mogul in James Graham’s engrossing play charting the rise of the Sun newspaper.

The Guardian

A damn good story.
