Sonia Friedman Productions and Eleanor Lloyd Productions present the Headlong, Nottingham Playhouse and Almeida Theatre production of
A new adaptation created by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan
By George Orwell
Playhouse Theatre, London
Tickets £15 - £85
This production takes place at the Playhouse Theatre.
The unforgettable theatrical phenomenon returns to London after an acclaimed international tour.
Following a sell-out international tour, the five-star smash hit production of Orwell's dystopian masterpiece 1984 is back in London from 14th June. Now seen by over a quarter of a million people, theatre's most powerful event returns to London this June for a limited season. Don't miss out.
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 Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan’s radical and much lauded staging exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell's vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.
