Ink - Duke of York's Theatre

News emerges from the West End this week that another of the successful shows staged by the Almeida Theatre will be making its way to the West End. With a run at the Duke of York’s Theatre announced, according to London theatre Guide, audiences will get another chance to witness James Graham’s Ink when it lands in Theatreland towards the end of 2017.

This will be a production that commands plenty of attention, not only due to the star power working to bring this to life in the West End – the enormously talented Artistic Director of the Almeida Theatre Rupert Goold for one – but also due to the subject matter. With The Sun and Rupert Murdoch regularly on the minds of audiences around the country, Ink takes us back in time to the moment the two forces joined to change the shape of British media.

So we observe the time in the 1960s in which he acquires the paper and turns it around so that it becomes one of the most powerful political forces in the country.

Rupert Goold needs no introduction as he has enjoyed a successful career as one of the nation’s top directors. As the Artistic Director of the Almeida Theatre he has been behind some of the most talked-about production to play at the venue and in the West End, with recent examples like 2016’s Richard III and 2014’s King Charles III. His credits also include Made in Dagenham at the Adelphi Theatre, American Psycho at the Almeida Theatre and Earthquakes In London at the National Theatre, amongst many others.

James Graham is no stranger to the political and current affairs world. His play Labour of Love also appears in front of audiences in 2017 when it opens at the Noël Coward Theatre (it focuses on the Labour Party in a regional constituency) and his previous works include 2015’s The Vote and 2016’s Monster Raving Loony.

So all eyes will naturally be on his latest show that is now headed to the West End. It is due to open at the Duke of York’s Theatre in September 2017.
