THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 29TH MARCH 2014
George Orwell's seminal novel, 1984, is adapted by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan for Headlong Theatre company who have created "a superbly handled multimedia speculation on the nature of truth" according to the Guardian theatre critic Lyn Gardner who gave it 5 out of 5. 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 new adaptation opened in September last year at the Nottingham Playhouse and toured the UK, arriving at the Almeida Theatre in February 2014.
