Nothing is your own, not even your thoughts... and 2+2=5. Fact!

Great Britain is part of Oceania, controlled by Big Brother. With most of the world at war, Winston works at the Ministry of Truth, rewriting history to fit Party doctrine. But quietly, rebellion creeps in. He begins a diary, and - more importantly - falls in love.

Can you trust the evidence or each other? How do you know what’s really true? And can you hold out against your deepest fears?

A dark, cautionary tale about the dangers of totalitarianism, government surveillance and censorship.

There will be after-show discussions following the two Friday evening performances. To introduce the discussion on 13 October, we are excited to welcome DJ Taylor, author of the critically acclaimed biography, Orwell: The New Life.

This performance contains adult themes and implications of torture.



By Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan
