Casting has been announced for Tim Price's Teh Internet is Serious Business, a fictional account of the true story of hacking activists, which opens at the Royal Court next month.

It will feature Kae Alexander, who starred in BBC Three's Bad Education alongside comedian Jack Whitehall, as well as Natalie Dew, Kevin Guthrie, Hamza Jeetooa, Ferdinand Kingsley, Kerr Logan, Nathaniel Martello-White, Eileen Walsh and Sargon Yelda.

The play aims to bring an issue that has been a regular feature of current affairs in recent years as the internet has become more and more of a staple aspect of our daily life. The story takes the point of view of the hackers themselves in a fictional retelling of events that occurred in 2011, when the anonymous world of the internet was used to expose big corporations, leading to an investigation resulting in several arrests.

The Royal Court's latest endeavour uses original music and physical movement, directed by Hamish Pirie, designed by Chloe Lamford, with lighting by James Farncombe, music by James Fortune, sound by David McSeveney and choreography by Emma Martin.

The show will open at the Royal Court in London on 17 September and run until 25 October.
