"... beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing, and crystalline in effect."

The New Yorker

One of the great novels of the 20th century—George Orwell’s 1984—is brought to life in an evocative and timely production by the acclaimed Aquila Theatre. Written more than 70 years ago, 1984 envisions a future dystopia where people are under constant control and surveillance by the government. Set in the totalitarian superstate of Oceania, the “Party” and its leader “Big Brother” employ the “Thought Police” to quell individualist and independent thinking. When obedient Party member Winston Smith, who secretly hates the repressive regime and dreams of a rebellion against Big Brother, begins a forbidden relationship with Julia, a fellow employee, his life sets off in a dangerous direction. How does Orwell’s nightmare compare to today’s society? Aquila’s “classically trained modernly hip troupe” (The New York Times) explores this question and more in this page-to-stage cautionary classic.  www.aquilatheatre.com
