1984 by George Orwell @ Queensland Performing Arts Centre


The sold-out production that stunned audiences in 2012 returns in 2014 following a five-month national tour. Strap yourself in for this terrifically frightening theatrical event directed by Michael Futcher set against a towering wall of plasma screens. Oceania; a Nation perpetually at war, where cameras watch every move and Thought Police roam the streets. A place Winston Smith calls home. By day, Winston is an editor at the Ministry of Truth, rewriting history to align the past with the current political agenda of the ruling party and its illusive leader, Big Brother. By night, Winston pursues a forbidden love affair with a mysterious woman in an attempt to rebel against Big Brother's oppressive regime and maintain some control over his otherwise totally controlled life. When Winston and his love are discovered, they are violently separated, detained and prepared for reintegration back into society. But can human nature truly be changed? From the team that brought you Animal Farm, this new adaptation brings George Orwell's final novel screaming into the present.
