War is Peace! Freedom is Slavery! Ignorance is Strength! 1984 is a dystopian tale based around Winston Smith, an unimportant member of the oppressive party 'Ingsoc'.

This show takes place in Winston’s cell in the ‘Ministry of Truth’, and centres around his interrogation by O’Brien, on suspicion of ‘Thought Crime’ against the Party and Big Brother. The ensemble is on stage for the entirety of the show and tell Winston’s story through a series of re-enactments. All ensemble roles are multi-rolled and strong, versatile actors have been cast to bring this production to life.
