Canny Brooks outfoxes Guardian hacks at West End showing

Politicos and hacks alike have been queuing up to see Ink, the play that chronicles the establishment of the Sun and the impact it had on the industry and the country.

Politicos and hacks alike have been queuing up to see Ink, the play that chronicles the establishment of the Sun and the impact it had on the industry and the country.

They include Rebekah Brooks, the former “Current Bun” editor who now runs its parent company News UK. She attended the play at the Duke of York theatre, where she went unrecognised because her distinctive flame-red hair was pinned up. She will have been delighted by the play’s relatively sympathetic portrayal of her boss and mentor Rupert Murdoch.

But the same cannot be said of the group of senior Guardian contributors who saw the play the same night. They were even more aghast when they discovered Brooks had been present in the audience but they had failed to spot her. Perhaps the scarlet pimpernel of Fleet Street made her escape before the lights came up?
