First look: the cast of Rupert in rehearsal

How do you trace the life of someone who feels so much larger than life? David Williamson’s Rupert attempts to do just that with mogul of moguls, Rupert Murdoch.

It was a hit at the box office in Melbourne last year, and it played the Kennedy Center in the US, and it’s going to hit the West End, but first, under the direction of Lee Lewis, Rupert is coming to the Theatre Royal for its Sydney engagement.

Starring James Cromwell  and Jane Turner, we have some shots (taken by the talented Brett Boardman) from the rehearsals of the splashy show that, David Williamson says, isn’t your typical Williamson comedy.


Rupert will play the Theatre Royal from 25 November. For bookings and more information, visit
