On Thursday 29 August 2013, Melbourne Theatre Company presented the World Premiere of Rupert, David Williamson’s take on the greatest media mogul of all time. The show enjoyed a sell-out season, critical acclaim and a tour to the USA for its North American premiere at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, where it received standing ovations.
Now, 14 months later, Rupert is heading to Sydney for an exclusive premiere season at Sydney’s Theatre Royal opening on Saturday 29 November 2014 for a strictly limited three week season ahead of a transfer to London’s West End in 2015.
AussieTheatre are thrilled to be giving away two DOUBLE PASSES to see the show on Tuesday 9 December at 7pm so our readers have an extra opportunity to see the show before it heads overseas.
Rupert is a timely, theatrically inventive, often hilarious, cabaret infused recounting of the life and times of this influential-yet-elusive man who has shaped our world. Charting his stellar rise to the top, Rupert tap dances (sometimes literally) his way through his first newspaper acquisitions, discoes toward his American breakthrough, shares a fiery flamenco with Margaret Thatcher, and charms some of the most colourful characters of the 20th century, including Tony Blair, Ronald Reagan and Wendi Deng. But what happens when the man behind the news suddenly becomes the news?
Competition closes on Tuesday 2 December AEDT. Winners will be notified via email/phone.
Theatre Royal, King Street Sydney
