I want to tell you a story. And it's true. That's what makes it a good f*cking story, right, 'cause all the best stories are true.

Fleet Street. 1969. The Sun rises.

James Graham's ruthless, red-topped play leads with the birth of England's most influential newspaper – when a young and rebellious Rupert Murdoch asked the impossible and launched its first editor's quest, against all odds, to give the people what they want.

Before ‘Fox News’, there was ‘The Sun’. In 1969, The Sun was a struggling, left leaning Broadsheet destined for failure. Enter a brash young Rupert Murdoch, ready to disrupt Fleet Street, rogue editor Larry Lamb and an unlikely team of underdog reporters and you’ve got yourself 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! 

Ink centers around an unlikely matchup of David and Goliath proportions between Murdoch’s newly purchased The Sun and the best selling newspaper in the world, The Mirror. It may even have you rooting for Australia’s own Media Mogul himself.
