1984 (Nineteen Eighty-Four) [9781783190614]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

April, 1984. 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.

Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwell's fiction is often said to be our reality. The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in a radical new adaptation exploring why Orwell's vision of the future is as relevant as ever.


AUTHOR: Robert Icke was artistic director of the Arden Theatre Company in Stockton on-Tees from 2003 7 and of the Swan Theatre Company in Cambridge from 2005 8, where he was awarded the Susie Gautier-Smith Prize for his contribution to theatre.
