Ink written by James Graham and directed by Rupert Goold opens today at the Almeida.
Set in the pubs and offices of 1960's Fleet Street, James' play depicts the birth of the UK's most influential newspaper. A young and rebellious Rupert Murdoch sets out to deliver a newspaper that will give the people what they want; gathering a team of misfits and mavericks he pits himself against an industry resistant to his newly formed brand of populism.
James Graham writes for theatre, film and television – he’s currently exploring Brexit for Channel 4, adapting 1984 as a film with Paul Greengrass and opening Labour of Love at the Noel Coward Theatre. James previously wrote This House which enjoyed a critically acclaimed run at the National and then the Garrick as well as the play The Vote which was broadcast live on Channel 4 on election night.
Starring Bertie Carvell, Richard Coyle, Pearl Chanda and Curtis Brown's Tim Steed.
Ink opens at the Almeida on 27 June. Buy tickets here.
