About Corruption

Directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher, Corruption explores the phone-hacking scandal that impacted Rupert Murdoch’s media empire in 2011. The play, premiering at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater on February 15, immerses audiences in one of the most infamous events in the history of British media. Check back for information on Corruption tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

Adapted from the book Dial M for Murdoch: News Corporation and The Corruption of Britain by Tom Watson and Martin Hickman, Corruption off Broadway recounts Parliament member Tom Watson's legal battle against Murdoch's News International following a defamatory smear campaign. Together with a team of journalists, lawyers, and politicians, Watson works to expose the systemic corruption at the heart of the media giant, and to safeguard democracy, even if it means risking everything to uncover the truth.

Playwright J.T. Rogers collaborates with Sher once again to bring this true story to the stage. Rogers is best known for his Tony-winning play Oslo, which he adapted into an Emmy-nominated film for HBO. He is also the creator and showrunner of Tokyo Vice, a crime drama series entering its second season on Max.

What is the Corruption play based on?

The source material for Corruption off Broadway is Dial M for Murdoch: News Corporation and the Corruption of Britain. Watson and Hickman published the book in 2012, and it alleges that Murdoch’s company used political influence and connections to engage in illegal newsgathering methods in London.

Due to concerns that Murdoch’s News International might interfere with the launch, details about the title and release date were kept confidential. Those involved in production were required to sign nondisclosure agreements to maintain secrecy. Consequently, the timeframe between receiving the final manuscript and publication is believed to be the shortest in the history of its publisher, Penguin.
