Nineteen Eighty-Four
George Orwell's classic novel adapted and directed by Matthew Dunster and designed By Paul Wills
24 February 10 - 27 March 10
WORLD PREMIERE of Matthew Dunster's sensual and sensitive adaption

War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.

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?
