The cast of Privacy at the Donmar Warehouse will not, as previously rumoured, feature Sienna Miller.

James Graham's new play explores how governments and corporations collect and use our personal information, and what that means for our security, our identity and our future.

The full cast is: Paul Chahidi, Gunnar Cauthery, Jonathan Coy, Joshua McGuire, Nina Sosanya and Olivier Award-winner Michelle Terry.

Directed by Josie Rourke and provoked by the recent revelations of Edward Snowden, Privacy draws on interviews with journalists, politicians and analysts, and asks the audience directly, how much do we give away when we share?

The production runs from 22 April to 31 May 2014 (previews from 10 April).

William Houston, recently seen in Three Sisters at the Young Vic and Fortune's Fool at the Old Vic, will play the title role in the Globe's summer production of Titus Andronicus.

A restaging of Lucy Bailey's acclaimed 2006 production at the same venue, Titus will also star Indira Varma, recently seen in Jamie Lloyd's production of Pinter's The Hothouse at Trafalgar Studios, as Tamora.

Aso in the cast are: Obi Abili (Aaron), Matthew Needham (Saturnius) and Ian Gelder (Marcus Andronicus), alongside Steffan Donnelly, Dyfan Dwyfor, Samuel Edward-Cook, Paul Ham, Nicholas Karimi, Jake Mann, Brian Martin, Bryonie Pritchard, David Shaw-Parker, Flora Spencer-Longhurst and Jamie Wilkes.

Titus Andronicus runs in rep from 24 April 2014.
