About Corruption

Dive into the gripping phone-hacking scandal that rocked Rupert Murdoch’s media empire in 2011. At Lincoln Center Theater’s Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater from February 15, this gripping new play gives audiences a first-hand look inside one of the most scandalous events in the history of British media. Set an alert for Corruption tickets on TodayTix.

Playwright J.T. Rogers and director Bartlett Sher, acclaimed for the Tony-winning Best Play Oslo, team up once again to bring this true story to the stage. Based on the 2012 book Dial M for Murdoch: News Corporation and The Corruption of Britain, Corruption off Broadway follows Parliament member Tom Watson's fight against Murdoch's News International after its outlets ran a malicious smear campaign against him. What he finds, however, is far more insidious than he ever expected.

More information about Corruption

Corruption unfolds as Watson confronts Rebekah Brooks, the towering leader of News International, in a David-and-Goliath struggle. Alongside a team of journalists, lawyers, and politicians, Watson strives to uncover the corruption at the core of this media empire. Determined to save democracy, the crew must risk everything to get to the truth.

Long before Corruption off Broadway, the real Tom Watson, a British Labour Party MP, and Martin Hickman, a journalist from The Independent, published Dial M for Murdoch. in 2012. Watson, and Martin Hickman. The book alleged that Murdoch’s company used its political influence and connections to get away with illegal newsgathering methods in London.

To maintain secrecy, details about the title and release date were confidential, and those involved in the book’s production with Penguin Books had to sign nondisclosure agreements due to concerns that Murdoch’s News International might try to thwart the launch. Because of this, the timeframe between the final draft and publication is thought to be the shortest in Penguin’s history.
