George Orwell’s prophetic tale in a daring adaptation for stage by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan. A harsh yet extremely truthful manifesto against totalitarianism, a dystopian masterpiece on constructing a reality, misrepresenting the past, controlling and freezing consciousness. A staggering text that is still relevant to our days, seventy-two years after it was first published.
The main character, Winston Smith, lives in the dark world of Oceania, and struggles, by every means possible, to remain sane despite the suffocating surveillance regime of the Big Brother, which strictly forbids people from thinking. Against this backdrop, he falls in love with Julia and cannot help but commit more and more Thoughtcrimes. Winston Smith thinks, remembers, imagines, and hopes. He longs for a world without the Big Brother. However, any attempt to escape is futile.
