1984, co-produced with @HeadlongTheatre, is an audacious, disturbing & arresting adaptation of Orwell's futuristic story for today.

1984 from @HeadlongTheatre really thought-provoking and intelligent. Also grim, obviously. #1984play

@HeadlongTheatre's #1984play @ShermanCymru was horrible. Excellent, thought provoking, uncomfortable, claustrophobic, timeless, horrible...

Just got home from 1984 - or have I? - and have been hurriedly reading other reviews of the play online. Having never been to a professional theatrical performance, yet knowing the gist of the story, I was still thoroughly gripped by the presentation, the various effects and methods of putting over the story and its various ramifications. One hour, forty-five minutes flew by, I found myself on the edge of the seat most of it, at times quite startled by what was happening on stage - it was really a stunning production. I suspect other plays are probably quieter and less traumatic than this. Thanks very much for a gripping, chilling and memorable evening that will stay in my mind for a considerable time. I think it did justice to the book, and much, much more.
