1984Olivier Award-winning director Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan revive their production of George Orwell's seminal novel 1984 this year. After premiering at the Nottingham Playhouse in 2013 and touring internationally, 1984 was staged at the Playhouse Theatre last year and now returns for a limited run. Though "not an easy watch" (Guardian), Headlong's version of George Orwell's novel on surveillance and censorship uses a book club from the distant future discussing Winston Smith's diary to makes the story more relevant today than ever. This smash hit adaptation returns to the Playhouse Theatre in London's West End for a three-month run beginning on 12th June 2015.

 

About Playhouse Theatre

A short step away from the main strip of West End theatres, the Playhouse's stylish curved facade is rather lost among the towering architecture of Charing Cross and Embankment. If the exterior is a little too restrained however, the same cannot be said for the auditorium, which is a sumptuous tribute to theatrical excess. More about Playhouse Theatre
