Based on the novel by George Orwell

The Gamm breathes fresh life into George Orwell’s landmark novel with a bold retelling of the political satirist’s hauntingly prophetic story. In a totalitarian world at war, with Big Brother watching and the Thought Police on his heels, Winston Smith clings stubbornly to his vision of a different future. What starts as an act of rebellion and hope rapidly unravels in a nightmare of doomed love, personal betrayal and the terrors of Room 101. British playwright Nick Lane’s spare script, punctuated by chilling multi-media effects, resonates now more than ever.
