George Orwell’s classic dystopian nightmare about right-wing government gone mad and the persecution of the individual is as relevant now as it ever was. This modern adaptation of the novel is a must-see for anyone concerned about free speech, increasing surveillance, and the erosion of privacy.
Intensely, darkly entertaining, this version of 1984 features live-on-stage, renowned ABC TV presenter KERRY O’BRIEN as The Narrator. The Voice of Big Brother is provided by legendary 4th Doctor Who, TOM BAKER. Both are supported by a talented ensemble of Tasmanian-based actors, including Chris Rattray.
It’s a night out at the theatre you won’t forget in a hurry – except you might wish you could!
