The unforgettable theatrical phenomenon returns to London following an acclaimed international tour.

Following a sell-out international tour, the five-star smash hit production of Orwell's dystopian masterpiece 1984 is back in London from 14th June. Now seen by over a quarter of a million people, theatre's most powerful event returns to London this June for a limited season. Don't miss out.

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 Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan’s radical and much lauded staging exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell's vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.

Our Review

This review relates to the Almedia Theatre production before it transferred to the Playhouse Theatre

George Orwell was way ahead of his time when he published the book 1984 in 1949 — and now in 2015, it remains as joltingly prescient as ever. Here's a portrait of a world constantly at war... Read more
