A critically acclaimed performance of George Orwell’s classic novel 1984 comes to the stage at Cambridge.
The Arts theatre hosts the adaptation of the novel from Tuesday 21 to Saturday October 25.
The play tells the story of comrade 6079, Winston Smith who thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love.
But Big Brother is watching him - and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye.
Directed by Cambridge graduate, Rob Icke, this hugely successful co-production was one of Headlong’s most acclaimed and commercially successful tours in recent history, having had its world premiere at Nottingham Playhouse in September 2013.
