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.
Bertie Carvel is brilliant as a mephistophelian Rupert Murdoch.
Carvel is a natural as the media mogul in James Graham’s engrossing play charting the rise of the Sun newspaper.
A damn good story. Truly thought-provoking
