Event location: Playhouse Theatre. Ongoing event.

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.

This production contains loud noises, gunshots, bright and flashing lights, and scenes which some audience members, particularly those of a nervous disposition, may find distressing.
