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

A damn good story.

The Independent

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

The Guardian

Bertie Carvel is brilliant as a mephistophelian Rupert Murdoch.
