MURDOCH GIVEN A NEW LEASE ON LIFE

12 Aug 2013

MURDOCH GIVEN A NEW LEASE ON LIFE Image

As an aspiring media empire, Southbank Local New’s interest was sparked by Melbourne Theatre Company’s (MTC) latest production, Rupert.

David Williamson’s latest foray into theatre is a close look at the life and times of the most powerful media mogul on the planet.

The play centres around the most recent, and perhaps largest of Murdoch’s public scandals and ensuing battles, those of the Leveson Inquiry into News Corporation’s phone hacking.

It takes a unique look at the man behind the headlines.

Lee Lewis will direct the show and stars Marg Downey and Simon Gleeson. Guy Edmonds plays the young Rupert, while the older version is played by Sean O’Shea.

Rupert will be on show from August 24 until September 28. For more information head to the MTC’s website www.mtc.com.au
