The Headlong, Nottingham Playhouse and Almeida Theatre production of 1984 is set to return to the West End for a 12-week run in June.

Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan's adaptation of George Orwell's novel will run at the Playhouse Theatre from 14 June to 3 September following an international tour.

As with the previous run, 1984 will have 101 seats at every performance priced at £19.84.

George Orwell's 1984, published in 1949, is one of the most influential novels of modern times, with its chilling depiction of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance and incessant public mind control.

The show has design by Chloe Lamford, lighting by Natasha Chivers, sound by recent Olivier Award-winner Tom Gibbons and video design by Tim Reid. It is directed by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan with Daniel Raggett.

Casting for the return is to be announced. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday.
