About the Show
April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary and falls in love. But Big Brother is always watching.
Published in 1949, George Orwell’s book helped define the 20th century. Now, 1984 is re-examined in this radical, award-winning international theatrical blockbuster seen by more than a quarter of a million people.
An exploration of surveillance and identity, 1984 presented a vision of the future that looks a lot like our present. Orwell’s fiction has become our reality. Described as “masterfully constructed and chillingly frank” (Limelight Magazine), this stage adaptation is a dynamic, political, technology-enhanced dive into Orwell’s complex vision.
Produced by British theatre innovators Headlong along with Nottingham Playhouse and Almeida Theatre, this production’s success has led to multiple seasons on the West End and numerous international festival appearances.
“This compelling incarnation of Orwell’s dystopia makes you gasp.” The Age
