New Casting Announced for A CLOCKWORK ORANGE at Park Theatre

pixeltracker

Action To The Word's award-winning all-male production of Anthony Burgess' A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, directed by Alexandra Spencer-Jones, will return to London following its acclaimed premiere in Edinburgh in 2011 and an international tour. A Clockwork Orange opens at Park Theatre on 14 February and plays until 18 March, with a press night on Thursday 16 February.

An electrifying and testosterone filled physical theatre horror show that exquisitely captures and transcends the spirit of Anthony Burgess' original literary masterpiece, A Clockwork Orange lures its audience into the glorious glass-edged nastiness of Manchester's underworld. A playtime of orgiastic ultraviolence and sexuality, it's the story of little Alex and the Droogs in their battle against the tedium of adolescence. An unapologetic celebration of the human condition, it remains as terrifyingly relevant today as when the book was published in 1962 and when Stanley Kubrick's film caused a stir in 1971.

Jonno Davies will return to the production to star as 'Alex', having played the role previously on two international tours. Other stage credits include A Midsummer Night's Dream (National Theatre/Latitude), Dracula (Arts Theatre/International tour) and Shakespeare in Love (Noel Coward). His screen credits include Milk and Honey, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Spotless and Hollyoaks.

He is joined on stage by Luke Baverstock as 'Georgie/Zophar', Sebastian Charles as 'Dim/Pedofil/Joe', Simon Cotton as 'Frank Alexander/Mum/Brodsky', Damien Hasson as 'Deltoid/Chaplain/Rick', Philip Honeywell as 'Mark Alexander/Branom/Marty/Woman', James Smoker as 'Old Woman/Minister/Dad/Rubenstein', Will Stokes as 'Billy Boy/Governor/Comedian/F-Me Pumps/Dolin/Len' and Tom Whitelock as 'Pete/Bromine'.

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE is directed by Alexandra Spencer-Jones, Artistic Director for Action to the Word, for which she has created DRACULA (Arts Theatre/International Tour), A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM (National Theatre/Latitude Festival) and CONSTANCE & SINESTRA AND THE CABINET OF SCREAMS (New Wimbledon Theatre/Latitude Festival). Her credits as Associate Director include STEPPING OUT (Theatre Royal Bath/UK Tour), the Olivier Nominated BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM (Sonia Friedman Productions), Andrew Lloyd Webber's THE WIZARD OF OZ (London Palladium), Garsington Opera's LA PERICHOLE, Grange Opera's PETER GRIMES and OLIVER! and Scot William's HOPE (Royal Court).

Alexandra Spencer-Jones said, "In a world where the pillars of leadership are crashing down around us, Burgess' timeless masterpiece brought to stage is more urgent than ever. There will always be a disaffected youth who are not listened to. A Clockwork Orange is a brutal examination of the self versus the state in the age-old struggle for human freedom."

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE is presented by Glynis Henderson Productions, with lighting by James Baggaley and additional choreography by Hannah Lee.
