World Premiere

Australia’s best-known playwright returns to MTC as we’ve never seen him before, using the greatest media scandal of modern times as the launchpad for a maverick theatrical presentation.

Rupert Murdoch was born in Melbourne to one of the most powerful families in the nation. And it was here that his astonishing career began. Right-wing demigod, charismatic businessman, devoted father, news baron with printer’s ink in his veins – Rupert is seemingly omniscient and omnipotent. And then came the Leveson Inquiry.

A world premiere, this enthralling political fantasia sees Rupert forging his destiny, and making our history, in what promises to be one of the most discussed plays of the decade.

Director: Lee Lewis
