Following a sell-out run at the Almeida earlier this year, Rupert Goold’s acclaimed production of James Graham’s Ink transfers to the West End for a strictly limited season at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
With a cast featuring Bertie Carvel as Rupert Murdoch and Richard Coyle as Larry Lamb, this gripping new drama charts the birth and rise of tabloid red top The Sun, the UK’s most influential newspaper.
Fleet Street. 1969. The Sun rises.
Young and rebellious Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch is keen to disrupt the sanctified traditions of Fleet Street and square up to the patrician stuffiness of the establishment. Quietly ambitious union man Larry Lamb is appointed The Sun’s revolutionary first editor, vowing to give the people what they want. Changing the landscape of the British media forever, the race to win the circulation war quickly turns into a race to the bottom in moral terms, revealing how rapidly ambition can corrupt.
