More details:

In April 1984 at 1pm, Winston Smith thinks a thought, starts a diary and falls in love. But Big Brother is always watching.

After a sell-out UK tour and run at the Almeida, the critically acclaimed show has been creating quite a buzz in the West End's Playhouse Theatre and for good reason. Having received a nomination for the 2014 Olivier Awards for Best New Play along with a plethora of five-star reviews, this is a must see show but you've only got a few more weeks to catch it.

Writers-directors Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan have adapted George Orwell's political novel set in a dystopian future transforming it into a cerebral, non-stop attack on the senses that will have you glued to the edge of your seat in this remarkable visualisation of the inner workings of a thought criminal. Don't miss this opportunity to see a rare and exciting piece of theatre for an incredible price.

From Time Out's five-star review:

Headlong’s adaptation of George Orwell’s ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’ is such a sense-overloadingly visceral experience that it was only the second time around, as it transfers to the West End, that I realised quite how political it was.

Writer-directors Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan have reconfigured Orwell’s plot, making it less about Stalinism, more about state-sponsored torture. Which makes great, queasy theatre, as Sam Crane’s frail Winston stumbles through 101 minutes of disorientating flashbacks, agonising reminisce, blinding lights, distorted roars, walls that explode in hails of sparks, figures that silently materialise from shadows, and the almost-too-much-to-bear Room 101 section, which churns past like ‘The Prisoner’ relocated to Guantanamo Bay.

It’s easy to be distracted by the sound and fury, and the clever structural tricks – it was only upon rewatching that I realised how directly it asks the question: could we be in ‘1984’ now?
