George Orwell's 1984 : Adapted by Matthew Dunster
"Winston Smith rewrites history for the Ministry of Truth, but when he's handed a note that says simply 'I love you' by a woman he hardly knows, he decides to risk everything in a search for the real truth. In a world where cheap entertainment keeps the proles ignorant but content, where a war without end is always fought and the government is always watching, can Winston possibly hold onto what he feels inside? Or will he renounce everything, accept the Party's reality and learn to love Big Brother?"

About George Orwell
"Matthew Dunster was born in Oldham. He works as a writer, actor and director. His plays You Can See the Hills and Children's Children are published by Oberon Books. He lives in London with his wife and three children."
'Dunster - both in his faithful take on the story and in his sometimes extreme but always enthralling adaptation - gets close to the heart of Orwell's warning, pointing up but not overemphasising its current political resonances. Newspeak, Doublethink, Room 101 and Thought Police take on a chilling reality in this compelling production.' The Independent
Our customer reviews
The title in the search results is misleading. This is not George Orwell's 1984, despite being called 1984 by George Orwell. It's some sort of play.show moreby Rebecca Khan
