I was invited last week to see the theatre production of 1984.  I was vaguly aware of the book and more familiar with the Apple advertisement based on the dystopian society.

Throwing caution to the wind I decided to not google any of the storyline as so many plays I go to now I have already read about.  This proved to be the best bet as part of the story is trying to understand the confusing thoughts of the main character.

The production at The Playhouse Theatre was done incredibly well with lots of effects allowing the mind of Winston Smith to be convered with only one major scene change.  For those that are familiar with the book I believe you would be impressed with the play’s storyline and its ability to stay faithful to the storyline.

My tips for this play if you decide to go note that there is no interval and some gruesome scenes near the end that you might have to turn away from.  I certainly did!
