The story, written in 1949, predicts a grim future in which protagonist Winston Smith and his fellow citizens of Airstrip One are forced to tow the party line or risk extermination.
Orwell’s much famed novel about a dystopian future in which citizens are policed by the all seeing Big Brother has been adapted on countless occasions, but this production threatens to be as tantalising yet terrifying as ever.
The Headlong Theatre production puts a new spin on the Orwellian classic as the narrative is framed within the fictional discovery of Winston’s “diary” by historians. Together they try to decipher whether Winston’s tale is a work of mere fiction or, indeed, truly horrifying historical fact.
