'A play for today. The blazingly talented James Graham has penned a super, soaraway smash.'
Daily Telegraph

Fleet Street. 1969. The Sun rises. A young and rebellious Rupert Murdoch askes 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 Associate, The Lover), this ruthless, red-topped new play leads with the birth of this country's most influential newspaper.

Following its current sell-out season at the Almeida Theatre, which finishes on 5 August, the premiere of Ink, written by James Graham and directed by Rupert Goold, transfers to the West End's Duke of York's Theatre for a strictly limited season. It runs from 9 September to 6 January 2018, and tickets are now on sale.

Ink will be the second new James Graham play opening in the West End in September. His play about the Labour Party, Labour of Love starring Martin Freeman and Sarah Lancashire, is at the Noel Coward Theatre from 15 September to 2 December 2017. Both new plays follow the West End season of Graham's 2012 play This House earlier this year.

Ink, with a cast led by Bertie Carvel as Rupert Murdoch and Richard Coyle as Larry Lamb, is a "ruthless, red-topped new play" that leads with the birth of this country's most influential newspaper, The Sun.

James Graham said: "It's been such a creatively rewarding experience, building this show at the Almeida. I'm in absolute awe of our actors and the creative team, led by Rupert. And grateful to the audiences who've been coming and supporting the work. After being given the chance to revive This House in the West End earlier this year, I think it's really exciting to see so many new and politically-engaged plays being given the chance to find a wider audience."

Rupert Goold said: "I'm thrilled the Almeida's production of Ink will transfer to the West End this autumn and that we are able to share James Graham's brilliant play, together with Bunny Christie's ingenious set design and our sensational company of actors, with a wider audience. Ink is a play about ambition, truth and the power of the press - and for that reason it has never felt a more timely and significant story to tell."
