The Lyric Theatre and Bruiser Theatre Company is proud to present the stage adaptation of George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984.

It’s April 1984.

Winston Smith, or Comrade 6079 as he is known, lives in a bleak world where the ruling Party controls everything, independent thinking is called “thoughtcrime” and Big Brother is always watching from above. Winston does something he knows is punishable by death – he writes a diary – and he falls in love, and then he has to face the horror of Room 101.

George Orwell’s dystopian novel, ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’, is re-examined this major new production exploring surveillance, identity, censorship and Truth.  It reminds us why Orwell’s tale is as relevant now as it ever was.

This brilliant, chilling and exhilarating adaptation will leave audiences gripping their seats in fear, but also reminded of our power as citizens, and our responsibility as human beings to each other.

Please note this performance contains violence.  Age recommendation 14+
