We all look at ticket prices for the theatre and flinch in horror, sometimes it's disappointing because it comes down to food or the arts and for us, it's always the arts... it keeps us slim.

When you look at the amount of work that goes in on the stage, front of house and those working to make sure everything works behind the scenes then you begin to see that the ticket price can be reflective of the work that's gone into the run up of  a show and the work put in during the actual run on the stage.

Boxofficebuz takes a look at the rehearsal process for the international hit production of George Orwell's 1984 which heads to the Playhouse Theatre, London this summer. The show from Olivier Award-winner Robert Icke and Olivier Award-nominee Duncan Macmillan, will preview from 14 June 2016, with the press night on 28 June 2016.

George Orwell’s 1984, published in 1949, is one of the most influential novels in recent history, with its chilling depiction of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance and incessant public mind-control.  Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwell’s fiction is often said to be our reality.

The cast for the hit West End production of George Orwell’s dystopian masterpiece will be: Rosie Ede, Andrew Gower, Joshua Higgott, Richard Katz, Anthony O’Donnell, Daniel Rabin, Catrin Stewart and Angus Wright alongside Eve Benioff Salama, Cleopatra Dickens, Amber Fernee and India Fowler who will alternate the role of Child.
