George Orwell’s dystopian masterpiece 1984 returns to the West End.
Following an international sell-out tour, Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan’s adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984 returns to the West End this summer.
Since premiering at Nottingham Playhouse in September 2013, the production has now played the Almedia Theatre, two West End runs and a sell-out international tour with over 250,000 people having seen the production.
George Orwell’s 1984, published in 1949, is one of the most influential novels in recent history, with its chilling depiction of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance and incessant public mind-control. The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in a radical, award-winning adaptation exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell’s vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.
1984 will play a limited 12 week run from 14 June 2016 until 3 September 2016 at the Playhouse Theatre.
