Bertie Carvel to star in West End transfer of INK at the Duke Of York’s Theatre
Fleet Street. 1969. The Sun rises. A young and rebellious Rupert Murdoch asks 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
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.”
