About the Production:
April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is always watching.
Set in a world where an invasive government keeps a malevolently watchful eye on its citizens, this radical and much-lauded staging explores surveillance, identity and why Orwell’s vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.
Produced by UK theatrical innovators Headlong along with Nottingham Playhouse and the Almeida Theatre, this production of George Orwell’s dystopian classic came roaring onto the stage in 2013 and since then it has become an international phenomenon. Seen by over a quarter of a million people worldwide, it has enjoyed three hugely successful West End seasons as well as an international tour including a sold-out season at the Melbourne Festival.
Now with a brand new Australian cast, don’t miss one of the 20th century’s greatest and most chilling novels given new life by some of British theatre’s fastest rising creative stars.
