James Graham's Ink to transfer to the West End

The production premiered at the Almeida in June

Ink, James Graham's play about the birth of The Sun newspaper, will transfer to the Duke of York's Theatre in September, following its critically acclaimed run at the Almeida

Directed by Rupert Goold, the production stars Bertie Carvel as Rupert Murdoch in the story of the media mogul as a young man on Fleet Street in 1969. He is joined by Richard Coyle as Larry Lamb, the newspaper editor who introduced page three to The Sun.

In her review for WhatsOnStage, Sarah Crompton called the play "unmissable''.

Ink was Graham's debut play for the Almeida. His recent shows include This House, which transferred to the Garrick Theatre earlier this year, Privacy, The Angry Brigade and Finding Neverland on Broadway.

Ink runs at the Duke of York's Theatre from 19 September to 6 January, with previews from 9 September. It continues to run at the Almeida until 5 August.
