1984 by George Orwell
by George Orwell
A new adaptation created by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan
April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is always watching, and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye.
The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in this radical new staging exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell’s vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.
Headlong continues to interrogate our most important cultural texts, following productions of Six Characters In Search Of An Author, King Lear, Medea, Romeo and Juliet, The Seagull and Spring Awakening. This co-production has previously enjoyed two sell out runs; a national tour in 2013, and seven weeks at the Almeida Theatre in London, followed by three months in the West End in London.
