Almeida to stage anarchic comedy about Rupert Murdoch at the Sun
James Graham’s Fleet Street play part of season which includes the return of Ben Whishaw and a series of films in which actors perform famous speeches, available on the Guardian website
It’s a bit of a throwaway line in the article, but:
August will also see the debut of Pulitzer-nominated playwright Christopher Shinn’s new work, Against. Ben Whishaw will play Luke, a tech millionaire convinced he is the next messiah, whose calling is to confront violence in America.
It looks like there’s an intriguing new show mounting at the Almeida early next season, and Ben’s the lead! I’ve seen rumours that it will start August 23rd, and that tickets should go on sale in May (which reminds me that I owe the Almeida another annual membership fee….).
