Stephen Campbell Moore and Adrian Scarborough to star in When Winston went to War with the Wireless

Stephen Campbell Moore and Adrian Scarborough have been cast in the world premier of Jack Thorne’s play When Winston went to War with the Wireless.

Coming to the Donmar Warehouse this June, Katy Rudd directs this new play in which Stephen Campbell Moore plays former BBC director John Reith with Adrian Scarborough playing a young Winston Churchill. Based on a true story, the play is a gripping and timely examination of the BBC’s independence during the 1926 General Strike.

Jack Thorne says today “So delighted to announce this wonderful cast. Adrian is going to dazzle as the younger Churchill we’ve barely seen before, and Stephen will delight in bringing all the Gary Lineker shades in Reith. The BBC has constantly found itself pinched by Government crows, this was the first pinching and it feels an ever more apposite time to bring it to the stage.”

The production opens on 13 June, with previews from 2 June, and runs until 29 July.

When Winston went to War with the Wireless is designed by Laura Hopkins, with sound design by Ben and Max Ringham, lighting design by Howard Hudson, movement direction by Scott Graham, music by Gary Yershon and casting by Anna Cooper CDG.

Further casting to be announced.
