1984

Based on the iconic novel by George Orwell, 1984 tells the story of Winston Smith, a man physically and mentally under the omnipresent eye of Big Brother. With poignant truths that have striking relevance, this is a ferocious and provocative version of one of the most prophetic works of literature of the last century. 

Content Warning: This play contains very mature, potentially challenging content.
