Cast announced for 'Minority Report' stage adaptation
The new stage adaptation, directed by Life of Pi’s Max Webster, is set 30 years in the future and follows pioneering neuroscientist Dame Julia Anderton.
The full cast has been revealed for the stage adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s Minority Report. It opens at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre in London on 19 April.
The cast includes Jodie McNee as Julia, Nick Fletcher as George, Roseanna Frascona as Anna, Nicholas Rowe as Ralph, and Tanvi Virmani as David.
Chrissy Brooke, Xenoa Campbell-Ledgister, Ricardo Castro, and Danny Collins will play multiple roles and dancers.
The play has been adapted by writer and actor David Haig. Award-winning director Max Webster, who brought Life of Pi to the stage, will direct.
The creative team also includes production designer Jon Bausor, video designer, Tal Rosner, lighting designer Jessica Hung Han Yun, composer and sound designer Nicola T. Chang, movement director Lucy Hind, illusions director Richard Pinner, and casting director Lotte Hines CDG.
Speaking about the announcement, Webster said: “I’m so thrilled we have this extraordinary cast to bring David Haig’s play to life. I can’t wait to start rehearsing with them in what promises to be a huge challenge of acting, technical staging and imagination.”
Minority Report is set 30 years in the future and follows neuroscientist Dame Julia Anderton, who is about to launch the next phase of her pioneering Pre-Crime programme, detaining people for crimes before they are committed. But when Julia is accused of pre-murder, she’s in a race against time to save herself from her own system.
The play runs at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre until 18 May.
