1984: BY GEORGE ORWELL
14 June -18 June 2017
No doubt you've either read or heard about George Orwell's 1984. The game-changing novel, otherwise known as "the only book I've ever read, and I've read it dozens of times" by a certain Film Focus employee, is renowned for accurately predicting many of the future plights society now faces.
Luckily, if your paperback is battered and bruised by repeat readings, QPAC has you covered. Orwell's dystopian future is now adapted to the stage for a strictly limited season during the month of June, and it is already receiving incredible acclaim.
Published in 1949, George Orwell’s book helped define the 20th century. Now, 1984 is re-examined in this radical, award-winning international theatrical blockbuster seen by more than a quarter of a million people.
An exploration of surveillance and identity, 1984 presented a vision of the future that looks a lot like our present. Orwell’s fiction has become our reality. Described as "masterfully constructed and chillingly frank" (Limelight Magazine), this stage adaptation is a dynamic, political, technology-enhanced dive into Orwell’s complex vision.
