CAST ANNOUNCED FOR 1984 RETURN (21 MAY 2015)

Matthew Spencer will play the role of Winston Smith in the stage production of George Orwell's 1984 this summer. The role of Julia will be played by Janine Harouni until 25 July, and then Hara Yannas from 27 July to the end of the run. Simon Coates (Parsons from 29 June), Tim Dutton (O'Brien), Stephen Fewell (Charrington), Christopher Patrick Nolan (Martin), Ben Porter (Syme), Gavin Spokes (Parsons until 27 June))and Mandi Symonds (Mrs Parsons) complete the cast.

Matthew Spencer played Syme in 2014, as well as understudying the character of Winston Smith. All the other cast members are resuming roles they have played previously in the touring, Almeida or West End productions.

1984 returns to the Playhouse Theatre with previews from 12 June. The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in a radical, award-winning adaptation exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell's vision of the future is as relevant now as ever. George Orwell's 1984, published in 1949, is one of the most influential novels in recent history, with its chilling depiction of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance and incessant public mind-control. Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwell's fiction is often said to be our reality.
