Overview

April, 1984. Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is watching him, and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye. Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwell’s fiction is often said to be our reality. The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in a radical new adaptation exploring why Orwell’s vision of the future is as relevant as ever.

"This is a staging that reconsiders a classic with such steely power that it chills brain, blood and bone." - The Times

"[A] pitilessly brilliant retelling." - Guardian

"This risk-taking adaptation of George Orwell's masterpiece is doubleplusgood." - Telegraph

"A theatrical tour de force that has the destructive power of an earthquake." - The Stage

"Skilfully brought to life.... This is a very neat theatrical telling of the classic dystopian parable which is more a study of internal tension and tiny acts of defiance as it is a political drama... a work of extraordinary quality and intensity." - Independent
