Ink transferring to the Duke of York's theatre for a strictly limited season!
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. With a cast featuring Bertie Carvel (Doctor Foster, Matilda) and Richard Coyle (The Lover/The Collection), this ruthless, red-topped new play leads with the birth of this country’s most influential newspaper.
The play is set in 1969 and charts the rise of The Sun – the newest tabloid on Fleet Street – and how the unorthodox changes made then have shaped our newspapers today.
