Daniel Radcliffe is making a return to Broadway theatre with another unique play entitled 'Privacy'. It explores the relationship people have with the digital world and sharing personal data, and follows his last theatrical appearance which was 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' back in 2014.

Radcliffe will play the part of The Writer in this seven-person play about how the digital footprint we leave via social media can be used by the government, and potentially compromise our identities and security. It's nspired by the controversial whistleblower Edward Snowden, who will also be depicted in an upcoming movie entitled 'Snowden' starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

The production is unique in that it encourages audience members to leave their phones switched on and active, so who knows what kind of interactive experience theatre-goers will get from it. Written by James Graham (the book writer of the musical 'Finding Neverland'), the play has been directed by Josie Rourke and was originally shown at the Donmar Warehouse in London in 2014. 'Privacy' also stars De'Adre Aziza, Rachel Dratch, Reg Rogers, Raffi Barsounian and Michael Countryman.

'Privacy has at its heart a debate about modern life and we at the Donmar Warehouse cannot therefore think of a better partner than The Public Theater to bring this new play to American audiences', Rourke said in a statement. 'James and I have been across the US interviewing everyone from politicians, historians, campaigners - even an etiquette expert - about American attitudes to privacy. The show is a risk-taking, fun, and stimulating piece of theatre, that we hope pushes at the boundaries of audience experience.'

Graham said: 'Personal privacy in the modern age - when all our wants and fears can be monitored and monetised as we share more than we have before - is, I believe, one of the most crucial issue of our time.'

Since 'Harry Potter', Daniel Radcliffe has embarked on a number of ventures that could be considered unconventional, with movies such as 'Horns', 'Now You See Me 2' and 'Swiss Army Man'. He also famously appeared naked in the psychological drama 'Equus', which he followed up with the plays 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying' and 'The Cripple of Inishmaan'.

'Privacy' previews begin at The Public Theater in New York on July 5th 2016, and is open to the public between July 18th and August 7th.
