University of Adelaide Theatre Guild presents
An Amateur Production by Arrangement with Curtis Brown Group Ltd
Written by James Graham
Directed by Robert Bell and Rebecca Kemp
I want to tell you a story. And it's true. That's what makes it a good f**king story, right, 'cause all the best stories are true.
Fleet Street. 1969. The Sun rises.
James Graham's red-topped play leads with the birth of England's most influential newspaper when a young, rebellious Rupert Murdoch asked the impossible and launched its first editor's quest, against all odds, to give the people what they want.
Ink centers around a match-up of David and Goliath proportions between Murdoch’s newly purchased The Sun and the best selling newspaper in the world, The Mirror. Prior to purchase, The Sun was a struggling, left leaning Broadsheet destined for failure. Enter an ambitious Murdoch, ready to disrupt Fleet Street, rogue editor Larry Lamb and a team of underdog reporters, and you’ve got a story good enough for the front page.
This ensemble comedy is jam-packed with both hilarious and gripping dramatic moments that tell one hell of a story.
Content Warning: Frequent coarse language, adult themes, depiction of smoking.
