War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. Close Up Theatre (sell-out 2004-2017) presents Orwell’s hauntingly prescient classic, where every thought is recorded, monitored and restricted: where Big Brother is always watching. If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever. 'A brilliant production' (BroadwayBaby.com, on Death of a Salesman). 'Excellent' (ThreeWeeks, on Richard III). 'Outstanding' (EdinburghSpotlight.com, on Arcadia). 'Sexy, sordid storytelling' (ThreeWeeks, on The Canterbury Tales). Adapted and performed with kind permission of the George Orwell Estate.
