'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.' (Source: Melbourne Theatre Company website)
Premiered at the Playhouse, Arts Centre Melbourne, as a Melbourne Theatre Company production, 24 August to 28 September 2013.
