Royal Court 2013/14 season

Cast revealed for Internet drama at the Royal Court

First Published 5 August 2014, Last Updated 30 May 2018

Bad Education’s Kae Alexander, Sunshine On Leith’s Kevin Guthrie and London Irish’s Kerr Logan will star in the Royal Court’s hacking drama Teh Internet Is Serious Business.

The trio is joined in Tim Price’s latest play by actors Hamza Jeetooa, Ferdinand Kingsley, Nathaniel Martello-White, Eileen Walsh and Sargon Yelda, and dancers Amir Giles, Sarah Goulding, Faith Prendergast and Quyang K Van.

The drama, which runs at the Sloane Square venue from 17 September to 25 October, is a fictional account of a true story, exploring the world of hacking activists Anonymous and LulzSec. Price’s new work tells the story from their point of view, using music and movement to capture the group’s energy, mischief and darkness.

The piece is the latest from Price to focus on current affairs, following Protest Song, which explored the occupy movement, and The Radicalisation Of Bradley Manning, which delved into the story of a US soldier imprisoned for releasing documents to WikiLeaks. It reunites the writer with director Hamish Pirie, who previously worked on productions of Price’s I’m With The Band, Demos and Salt, Root And Roe.

Teh Internet Is Serious Business opens at the Royal Court following the run of another internet-based drama, The Nether, Jennifer Haley’s thriller about an online sanctuary where users can explore the darkest corners of their imaginations. The Nether closes on Saturday 9 August.
