Back in London this summer for 12 weeks only. The international 5-star smash hit production of Orwell's dystopian masterpiece 1984 returns to London this summer. Now seen by a quarter of a million people, theatre's most powerful event will only run for a strictly limited season. 12 weeks from 12 June. 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. ***** "Tremendous" The Observer ***** "Brilliant" Financial Times ***** "Remarkable" The Telegraph ***** "A work of extraordinary quality and intensity" The Independent ***** "Crushingly powerful stuff" Time Out "A theatrical tour de force that has the destructive power of an earthquake" The Stage
