“Don’t miss this masterful take on totalitarianism. This dystopian drama could be set in the past, the future, or even the present. The protagonist, Winston Smith, must survive in a fascist society controlled by a legion of henchmen and their intimidating leader, “Big Brother”. 1984 is set in a state of perpetual war in Oceania and Eurasia where Stalin-like purges from society are a daily reality—unless you conform to the accepted modes of speech, behavior and allegiance. Discover Orwell’s twisted world of double-speak, where your thoughts are not your own. This brazen play is a forewarning metaphor for the P.C. culture of today, the draconian societies of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, and whatever lies ahead in our near future. Be careful what you say or even think—because Big Brother is watching!
