The Kensington Swan Season of
By David Williamson
25 JUN - 19 JUL 2015 — Comedy
Auckland Theatre Company
The most powerful media magnate in modern history, Rupert Murdoch, takes a cabaret-style romp down memory lane to give us his cleverly crafted version of his life. Watch as Rupert tap-dances his way to early success across the ditch, discos towards his big American breakthroughs, shares a fiery post-Falklands tango with Margaret Thatcher, and charms some of the most powerful players of the twentieth-century.
A smash hit at the box office when it premiered at the Melbourne Theatre Company, Rupert is now scheduled for a West End run. Rupert is a scintillating celebrationof avarice, acumen and the lifestyles of the super-rich and famous. With legends and larrikins, song and dance, Williamson's irreverent and irresistible exposé of media, money, power and politics is sure to be 2015's maverick theatrical event. Scandalously audacious!
