Among the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwell's nightmare vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff's attempt to find individuality. The brilliance of the novel is Orwell's prescience of modern life--the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language--and his ability to construct such a thorough version of hell. Required reading for students since it was published, it ranks among the most terrifying novels ever written.
"This is a staging that reconsiders a classic with such steely power that it chills brain, blood and bone." -- The Times (The Times)
"A work of extraordinary quality and intensity." -- Independent (The Independent)
"[A] pitilessly brilliant retelling of the doomed love affair between Winston and Julia." -- The Guardian (The Guardian)
"This risk-taking adaptation of George Orwell's masterpiece is doubleplusgood." -- Telegraph (The Telegraph)

Get ready to party like it's 1984
Now, in 2017, the fear is here. 1984, the book is in the top ten book sellers this week. Why? Fasicism is upon us. Our rights are being depleted everyday. George Orwell told us, but it took 33 years after 1984 for his predictions to come true. Read on, ye seekers of truth, we need to unite.
