THE UNFORGETTABLE THEATRICAL PHENOMENON RETURNS TO LONDON FOLLOWING AN ACCLAIMED 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 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 this radical and much lauded staging exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell’s vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.
