Big Brother is always watching... in the world of 1984.

‘A richly deserved London transfer. This production turns Orwell’s dystopian head games into a powerful, visually audacious multimedia production.’ The Sunday Times

Following two sold-out runs, the critically acclaimed Headlong, Nottingham Playhouse and Almeida Theatre production of Orwell's dystopian masterpiece, 1984, returns to the West End's Playhouse Theatre for a strictly limited season.

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 a radical new staging exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell's vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.

 

Please note, this production contains loud noises and flashing lights and latecomers will not be admitted.
