Get to know the media mogul in a different light as David Williamson’s play Rupert hits Sydney.

Williamson takes on one of the most fascinating, divisive and powerful figures in Australian history. Part cabaret, part confessional, the play charts Rupert Murdoch’s career as he (literally) tap dances his way to the top of the media machine. Rather than go all out with vitriolic criticism, Williamson says his aim was to inhabit the character and let the audience make up their own minds. Not, of course, without a good dose of humour mixed in for good measure.

The play boasted a stellar run in Melbourne, and is now having an exclusive set of dates in Sydney. Directed by Lee Lewis and produced by Daniel Sparrow, it will only be playing for three weeks.

CatchRupertat the Theatre Royal from November 25 until December 3, tickets available online.
