A literary masterpiece meets sheer theatrical ambition.

1984

Presented by - State Theatre Company in association with Adelaide Festival Centre by arrangement with Ambassador Theatre Group present the Headlong, Nottingham Playhouse & Almedia Theatre Production

By George Orwell. A new adaptation created by Robert Icke and Duncan MacMillan.

April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is always watching.

Set in a world where an invasive government keeps a malevolently watchful eye on its citizens, this radical and much-lauded staging explores surveillance, identity and why Orwell’s vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.

Produced by UK theatrical innovators Headlong along with Nottingham Playhouse and the Almeida Theatre, George Orwell’s dystopian classic came roaring onto the stage in 2013 and since then it has become an international phenomenon. Seen by over a quarter of a million people worldwide, it has enjoyed three hugely successful West End seasons as well as an international tour including a sold out season at the Melbourne Festival. Now with a brand new Australian cast, we bring adapter-directors Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan’s thrilling vision to launch its national Australian tour in Adelaide.

Don’t miss the chance to see one of the 20th century’s greatest novels be given new life by some of the British theatre’s fastest rising stars.
