In a time when we have become victims of perpetual war, government surveillance and propaganda. When the Party decide what we should think and how we should act, and individuality is banned, Winston and Julia rebel against the totalitarian state by performing the political act of falling in love.  

Big Brother is watching.  Can Winston and Julia, faced with the horrors of room 101, fight against the annihilation of their own free will, or will Big Brother prevail?

Performed by our Contemporary Theatre Students from the University of Derby, George Orwell’s dystopian novel, adapted for the stage by Nick Lane, has startling relevance for the 21st Century.

Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell (Copyright, 1949) by permission of Bill Hamilton as the Literary Executor of the Estate of the Late Sonia Brownell Orwell, adapted by Nick Lane.
