1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four, Paperback Book

Description

The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in this radical new staging by Headlong, the 'country's most exciting touring company' (Telegraph), who brought us Romeo & Juliet in 2012, directed by Robert Icke. April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love.

But Big Brother is watching him - and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye. This major new production explores the world inside Winston Smith's head, as well as the world without, and catches the euphoria and bliss buried deep underneath the cold face of Big Brother. In an age of mass surveillance, 'total' policing and GPS tracking, Nineteen Eighty-Four is as relevant now as it ever has been. A new adaptation created by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan
