1984

By George Orwell. A new adaptation created by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan.

Sonia Friedman Productions and Eleanor Lloyd Productions present the Headlong, Nottingham Playhouse and Almeida Theatre production of 1984

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

The international 5-star smash hit production of Orwell's dystopian masterpiece 1984 returns to the West End. Now seen by over a quarter of a million people, theatre's most powerful event has just returned from an international tour. Don't miss out.

The cast includes: Rosie Ede, Andrew Gower, Joshua Higgott, Richard Katz, Anthony O’Donnell, Daniel Rabin, Catrin Stewart and Angus Wright alongside Eve Benioff Salama, Cleopatra Dickens, Amber Fernee and India Fowler who will alternate the role of Child.

  • I wrote last night that there is such a thing as truth. Facts are facts. Reality is reality. Two plus two makes four.
  • ★★★★★ Pitilessly brilliant The Guardian
  • ★★★★★ A remarkable, radical touring version for Headlong blazing with clinical, spine-tingling finesse. The Telegraph
  • ★★★★★ This is a staging that reconsiders a classic with such steely power that it chills brain, blood and bone. The Times
