A high-intensity, all-male stage adaptation of Anthony Burgess’ 1962 novel A Clockwork Orange, which arrived Off-Broadway at New World Stages in September after an acclaimed London engagement, will end its New York run December 2. Performances were originally scheduled to conclude January 6, 2018.
Alexandra Spencer-Jones directs the New York premiere that officially opened September 25. The all-male staging hails from Action to the Word, a U.K.-based theatre group that presents radical interpretations of classics.
British actor Jonno Davies reprises his role as Alex DeLarge for the New York premiere and is joined by new cast members Matt Doyle as Georgie, Sean Patrick Higgins as Dim, Brian Lee Huynh as Frank/Dr. Brodsky, Timothy Sekk as Chaplain/Deltroid, Aleksander Varadian as Marty/Warder, Ashley Robinson as Minister/Old Woman, Jimmy Brooks as F-Me Pumps/Governor, Misha Osherovich as Pete, and Jordan Bondurant as Droog.
The stage adaptation began at the London Fringe prior to playing the Edinburgh Festival, an international tour, and London’s Park Theatre.
Based on Anthony Burgess’ 1962 novel that also inspired the ground-breaking 1971 Stanley Kubrick film, A Clockwork Orange is set in a dystopian British society and follows “ultra-violent” teen Alex and his band of “Droogs.”
