Ink transferred to the Duke of York's theatre for a strictly limited season! Book your tickets before it is too late.

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), is now playing at 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.

Angela Ronicle31st December

Excellent production, very pacey, superb acting, and thought provoking, particularly as we are aware of what happens next.

DANIEL EAVES29th December

Brilliant play. First half perhaps a bit long. Set was inspired and actors worked well together as a team.

J Nunn28th December

Funny different subject matter. Good Xmas outing for grown up family

Tina Davies27th December

I go to the theatre a lot, and always have done. There are not that many straight plays in the West End but of these, 'Ink' is the best I've seen in a very long time; it kept my attention from the first to the last minute. The acting was great, the interpretation of events was accurate and imaginatively portrayed, and the set was both interesting to look at and observe the occasional changes, it was also a feat of engineering! I would love to see the play again but as I live in West Wiltshire, this would not be easy so, please go on tour - specifically to the Theatre Royal, Bath!

Rosalind McCarthy-Ward24th December

Sarah Wilton23rd December

First half was great Second half was too long and drawn out

Donal McCabe23rd December

Fantastic play. Up in the gods with a restricted view dodn't diminish the quality of the play/

Carol Davies22nd December

So glad I treated myself to a day in London including going to see the matinée performance of Ink. Bertie was amazing but I was disappointed that the part of Larry Lamb was played by the understudy. Otherwise really good.

Barbara Lee22nd December

Slick production. Interesting. Good play. Second half stronger than first half.

Jill Callander22nd December

Probably one of the best shows I’ve seen. The set on stage was amazing. Overall magnificent!

Fantastic-As an Ex Fleet Street Journalist I felt as if I was transported back in a Time Machine to a date when Newspapers were King.
