The Playhouse Theatre, London
The unforgettable theatrical phenomenon has returned to London following an acclaimed international tour. The five-star smash hit production of Orwell's dystopian masterpiece 1984 has been seen by over a quarter of a million people and is now back in London for a strictly limited summer season until 29 October, 2016. Don't miss out. April, 1984/ 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a though, 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 this radical and much lauded staging exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell's vision of the future is as relevant now as ever. 5 stars The Guardian 'Tingle-inducingly pertinent' The Times, June 2016
