Winston Smith, living under the totalitarian rule of the Party, has the idea of writing a diary. It is a crime punishable by death and there is no way of knowing if he is being watched. He imagines two futures—in one, a future readership in a free society think of him as a hero; in the other, he is caught and forgotten.

Readers on either side of the so-called Resistance are glomming onto the message of the dystopian classic, as fake news proliferates, allegations of improper surveillance swirl and authoritarian governments crackdown on citizens' rights around the globe.

*Audience members must be age 13 years or older in order to attend; no one born after 2006 will be admitted. Intense staging, graphic elements, violence, adult language, strobe lights, fog, sudden blackouts, jackhammer sounds, in addition to the plot’s extreme torture scenes. Once the play has commenced no one may leave the theatre.
