1984, by George Orwell, play adapted by Robert Owens, et al.
Directed by Robyn Rikoon

Tyranny, oppression and the loss of individuality are the terrifying reality of Orwell’s dystopian society. When it seems like there is no way out and people are being watched every second, even being forced to speak a new language limiting thought and emotion, it is up to at least one person to go against the system and dare to feel again. Winston does just that.

Raised by the Party and working in the department of records which alters the past to fit the ideal future, Winston has a hatred for the oligarchy. He believes in actual truth, in an unchangeable past, in love and ideas. He believes there are others like him.

In this original adaptation of Orwell’s novel, we experience his surprisingly accurate words forewarning a digitized and heartless society.
