April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is watching him - and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye.

Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwell's fiction is often said to be our reality. The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in a radical new staging exploring surveillance, identity and how thinking you can fly might actually be the first step to flying.

This new major production explores the world inside Winston Smith's head, as well as the world without, and catches the euphoria and bliss buried deep underneath the cold face of Big Brother. Headlong's version explores why Orwell's gaze is as applicable to the here and now as it ever was.

Headlong continues to interrogate our most important cultural texts, following productions of Faustus, Six Characters in Search of an Author, King Lear, Medea and Romeo and Juliet.

A co-production with Nottingham Playhouse
