Book 1984 Tickets at the Playhouse Theatre, London

About 1984

Following a sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre, and last year's success at London's Playhouse Theatre the critically acclaimed Headlong, Nottingham Playhouse and Almeida Theatre production of Orwell’s dystopian masterpiece, 1984, returns to the West End's Playhouse Theatre for a strictly limited season.

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 a radical new staging exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell’s vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.

The new adaptation is created and directed by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan.

★★★★★ “It is hugely ambitious to put this dystopia on stage…. Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan have pulled off something tremendous” The Observer 

★★★★★“Brilliant… creates a dynamic response that strips away complacency and plays on those creeping anxieties about trust, manipulation and freedom” Financial Times

★★★★★ “This stunning play is both a bold reinvention of George Orwell’s great postwar novel and remarkably faithful to it” The Times

★★★★★“A horrifyingly sensual experience, a heavily stylised race through a mind collapsing under terrible pressure… Crushingly powerful stuff” Time Out

★★★★“A rigorous and prodigiously confident reimagining of Orwell’s dystopian nightmare" Evening Standard,
