The eerily apt production of 1984, based on the novel by George Orwell, will begin performances May 18. As previously reported, the limited engagement is set to open at the Hudson Theatre (currently the home of Sunday in the Park with George) June 22.

The staging, produced on Broadway by Scott Rudin and Sonia Friedman, premiered at Nottingham Playhouse in 2013 before transferring the following year to London’s Almeida Theatre, where it went on to play four engagements.

The adaptation features a script by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan. Like the novel, the play is set in a dystopian version of what was once Great Britain, where critical thought is threatened by a totalitarian regime.
Tickets are currently on sale through October 8. Casting will be announced at a later date.
