'The hardest thing to identify has been where to stop researching a particular topic' James Dacre reveals what the research process has been for Brave New World

In this video, James Dacre, director of Brave New World, shares some of the topics and themes which may have influenced Aldous Huxley's writing in 1932. James reveals that part of the research process was guided by the attraction and relevance that the piece has to modern audiences, with the team drawing up lists of parallels from Brave New World with today's society.

 

Brave New World premieres at Royal and Derngate, Northampton, where it runs from 4 to 26 September 2015. It then tours to Edinburgh, Blackpool, Nottingham, Cheltenham, Wolverhampton, Darlington and Bradford where it concludes on 5 December.
