Orwell’s classic futuristic tale is restaged in this cutting-edge piece of theatre. Read More >

In the world of 1984, where even your thoughts are controlled and revolution is just around the corner, Julia and Winston begin a clandestine romance…

With its predictions of globalisation, surveillance paranoia and control through language, George Orwell’s classic futuristic tale 1984 is acutely relevant for our time. It is brought to life by the sensational Blind Summit Theatre, which has recently received major international recognition through its revolutionary work on Anthony Minghella’s Laurence Olivier Award-winning production of Madam Butterfly.

BAC’s work with Blind Summit Theatre on 1984 is the latest phase of a long standing relationship: the company were BAC-supported artists for 2003-2005, during which time BAC supported the development of their acclaimed show, Lowlife.

This startling new production of 1984 combines physical theatre, puppetry and music to create a cutting-edge and thought-provoking piece of theatre.

1984 is suitable for theatregoers aged 14 and older.
