WHAT IS 1984 ABOUT?
April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is always watching.
Orwell’s ideas have become our ideas; his fiction is often said to be our reality. The ‘definitive book of the 20th century' (The Guardian) is re-examined in a radical new staging exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell’s vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.
Following a sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre, the critically acclaimed Headlong, Nottingham Playhouse and Almeida Theatre production of George Orwell’s dystopian masterpiece 1984 returns to the West End's Playhouse Theatre for a strictly limited season.
Nominated for Best New Play at the 2014 Olivier Awards.
