Daniel Radcliffe-Led PRIVACY Begins Performances Tonight
The Public Theater and the Donmar Warehouse present Privacy, a new play co-created and written by Olivier nominated playwright James Graham, and co-created and directed by Olivier Award winner Josie Rourke, this summer. The production begins performances tonight, July 2nd, with an official opening set for Monday, July 18th.
PRIVACY is a timely exploration of the digital age that will feature a cast of seven, including Daniel Radcliffe as "The Writer."
Graham and Rourke's most recent collaboration, The Vote, a play for theatre and television, has just been nominated for a British Academy of Film and Television Award.
In addition to Daniel Radcliffe as "The Writer," the cast will include De'Adre Aziza, Raffi Barsoumian, Michael Countryman, Rachel Dratch, and Reg Rogers, playing an ensemble of real-life high profile politicians, journalists and technologists who have all contributed exclusively to the show.
Daniel Radcliffe is appearing with the permission of Actors' Equity Association. The Producers gratefully acknowledge Actors' Equity Association for its assistance of this production.
Inspired by the revelations of Edward Snowden, Privacy explores our complicated relationship with technology and data through the funny and heart-breaking travails of a lonely guy (Daniel Radcliffe), who arrives in the city to figure out how to like, tag, and share his life without giving it all away. The play uncovers what our technological choices reveal about who we are, what we want and who's keeping track of it all. This provocative theatrical event will ask audiences to charge their phones, leave them ON during the performance and to embark on a fascinating dive online and into a new reality where we're all connected...for better or worse.
