By George Orwell
A New Adaptation Created by Robert Icke & Duncan Macmillan
Presented in association with Headlong, Almeida Theatre, & Nottingham Playhouse
April, 1984. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is always watching, and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye. The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in a radical, award-winning adaptation exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell’s vision of the future is as relevant now as ever. This ground-breaking production comes direct from the UK and an extended smash-hit run in the West End.
