Overview


Synopsis

BIG BROTHER IS ALWAYS WATCHING YOU. This warning rules the frightening, dystopian future of George Orwell’s classic novel, 1984, adapted for the stage by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan. The totalitarian Party outlaws individualism, independence, and free thought, warping the past to their will and controlling its citizens with fear and violence. In the heart of this bleak world, Winston Smith dares to dream of a world free of Big Brother. Through small acts of defiance — starting a diary, falling in love — one lone man manages to take a stand for truth, freedom, and hope for the generations to come.
