About INK

It’s 1969 London. The brash young Rupert Murdoch (Bertie Carvel) purchases a struggling paper, The Sun, and sets out to make it a must-read smash which will destroy – and ultimately horrify – the competition. He brings on rogue editor Larry Lamb (Jonny Lee Miller) who in turn recruits an unlikely team of underdog reporters. Together, they will go to any lengths for success and the race for the most ink is on! Inspired by real events and a recent hit in London’s West End, James Graham’s electrifying new play comes to Broadway in the exhilarating Almeida Theatre production, directed by Rupert Goold. In its London run, The Guardian called it “riveting,” and Time Out hailed it as “an incredibly brilliant stunner.”

Tell Me More

Australian-born media mogul Rupert Murdoch is front and center in the Broadway bow of “INK” from British playwright James Graham. Now 87, Murdoch is a leading figure in world media, controlling cable channel Fox News, The Times of London ,and The Wall Street Journal. But there was a time when he was just starting out.

Set in 1969, the play begins when a young Murdoch takes over — and transforms — struggling British newspaper The Sun. With the help of ruthless editor Larry Lamb, Murdoch enlists a team of cutthroat reporters to reinvent The Sun into a tabloid giant with the goal to outsell their competition, The Mirror, in a year. Journalists go to any lengths to get on top in “INK.” Directed by Rupert Goold, the new play harkens back to a time when headlines were etched in INK to chronicle Murdoch’s rise to the top.
