What if one thought cost you everything? Following a wildly successful Broadway run, the nerve-jangling stage adaptation of George Orwell’s dystopian masterpiece opens at the Garden Theatre. 1984 presents a harrowing future in which a totalitarian government uses propaganda, brainwashing, constant surveillance, and torture to control its subjects. One of the most widely referenced and best-known fiction titles of all time, 1984 makes the dark implications of out-of-control state power feel urgent and real.
Please note that this production contains strong adult language, partial nudity, flashing lights, strobe effects, smoking, gunshots, and graphic depictions of violence and torture. The production is not suitable for children under 13 years of age.
