INK at Almeida Theatre

August 5, 2017

James Graham’s play INK directed by Richard Goold at the Almeida Theatre is both entertaining and important. It is the story of how by buying The Sun newspaper Rupert Murdoch began the transformation of news in the UK into entertainment. The talented Bertie Carvel is excellent as the young Rupert Murdoch and Richard Coyle anchors the whole play opposite him as Murdoch’s editor Larry Lamb. Every character in the story is colourful because of detailed and nuanced performances by an experienced cast.

Goold has a way of bringing fun choreography and movement into his productions that just elevate the story making it all more flowing and entertaining. Bunny Christie’s design and Neil Austin’s lighting give this production the feel of an old technicolour movie. I really enjoyed this play.
