Over the last few years James Graham has repeatedly emerged with plays that pluck at the modern political and social scene and presents something that reflects society back at its audience. From The Vote to This House, he has been on the pulse of the modern political zeitgeist and in the latter part of 2017 he proves that this is where he remains.

Ink takes a step back from Westminster and instead focuses on another force that has had a profound effect on the British political and cultural scene – The Sun newspaper and the Rupert Murdoch Empire. As such Ink takes us back in time to the moment that Murdoch added the famous newspaper to his legion of outlets, turning it around into the force that it is today.

The era is the 1960s and at the time The Sun was far from the influential tabloid that it is today. Enter Rupert Murdoch, who had yet to become the powerhouse of American media that he is today, and the rest is history.

The play ran at the Almeida Theatre in Islington in 2017 and now becomes the latest in a long line of successful shows to transfer from the venue to the West End. With Graham’s script and Rupert Goold’s direction this is sure to be on the lists of theatregoers across the capital.

After all, even without Graham’s script, which is the latest in a long line of successful west end shows, Goold’s reputation would be enough to encourage audiences to the Duke of York’s Theatre. The Artistic Director of the Almeida Theatre has been behind some huge shows in recent years, from King Charles III in 2014 (which also transferred to the West End and was adapted to the screen by the BBC) to Made in Dagenham. He is the perfect choice to bring life to James Graham’s latest show in London.

But then we would only expect the best when it comes to Graham’s play as he has surely proven himself with a wealth of stand-out shows, from 2016’s Monster Raving Looney to this year’s Labour of Love, which plays the Noël Coward Theatre.

Ink runs at the Duke of York’s Theatre from September 2017.
