Our incedible Olivier Award-winning BERTIE CARVEL is currently starring on stage as a young Rupert Murdoch in playwright James Graham’s political drama Ink. Having transferred to the West End after a sold-out season at the Almeida Theatre, the critically acclaimed production, directed by Rupert Goold, is now enjoying a successful run at the West End's Duke Of York's Theatre, with a wealth of five star reviews.
It’s Fleet Street, 1969, and a young Murdoch (Bertie) has plans to completely disrupt the hallowed traditions of the print industry, with the help of revolutionary editor Larry Lamb. Taking on the establishment and launching a new paper against all odds, Ink charts the controversial and meteoric rise of The Sun as it becomes one of Britain’s most influential prints.
Ink is playing a strictly limited season until 6 January 2018, so get your tickets asap and don't miss your chance to see Bertie's stunning performance on stage.
