Bertie Carvel: 'Playwrights are afraid to give people a good time'

The actor is currently playing Rupert Murdoch in James Graham’s ”Ink”

After a sold-out run at the Almeida earlier this year, James Graham's Ink has opened in the West End.

Bertie Carvel plays Rupert Murdoch in the story of the media mogul as a young man on Fleet Street in 1969. Richard Coyle joins him as Larry Lamb, the newspaper editor who introduced page three to The Sun. The company also includes Pearl Chanda as Stephanie Rahn – the first page three model.

In her review for WhatsOnStage, Sarah Crompton said Rupert Goold's production is a "a riot of anecdote and zinging dialogue… ultimately unmissable".

Ink runs at the Duke of York's Theatre to 6 January.
