Charting the rise of The Sun amidst the the bustle of 1969 Fleet Street, James Graham's critically acclaimed play Ink continues to give the people what they want with its West End transfer.

Ink centres on a young, rebellious and driven Rupert Murdoch, who challenges the established media by asking the impossible, launching The Sun's first editor's quest: to be the voice of the people... no matter what the cost.

The birth of one of the country's most influential newspapers is at the heart of this gripping, ruthless and red-topped new play.

Following a sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre, the show, directed by Artistic Director Rupert Goold and starring Bertie Carvel (Doctor Foster, Matilda The Musical) and Richard Coyle (The Lover/The Collection), transfers from the venue to the Duke of York's Theatre for a strictly limited season.

The returning cast also includes Oliver Birch, Rachel Caffrey, Pearl Chanda, Geoffrey Freshwater, Jack Holden, Justin Salinger, Sophie Stanton, Tim Steed, Tony Turner and Rene Zagger, with Jonathan Coy joining the company to play the role of Hugh Cudlipp. They will be joined on stage by Natalie Law, Andrew McDonald, Jonny McPherson, Owen Oldroyd and Joel Samuels who form the Ink ensemble.
