April, 1984. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought and starts a diary. But Big Brother is always watching, and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye. The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in a radical, award-winning adaptation exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell's vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.

The cast includes Simon Coates as Parsons, Tim Dutton as O'Brien, Stephen Fewell as Charrington, Christopher Patrick Nolan as Martin, Ben Porter as Syme, Matthew Spencer as Winston, Mandi Symonds as Mrs. Parsons, and Hara Yannas as Julia.

Set and Costume design is by Chloe Lamford, Lighting design by Natasha Chivers, Sound design by Tom Gibbons, Video design by Tim Reid.
