Confusing, Dizzying, Edgy, Ambitious, Excruciatingly loud !

See it if You have read 1984 and are curious about how a stage adaption would work. You are wanting to see every show currently on Broadway.

Don't see it if You can't tolerate frequent extremely loud sound effects. You are looking for humor. There is very little in this horrific vision of future.

Thought-provoking, Resonant, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy dramas that resonate with current events, or if you like small, smart productions of classic stories.

Don't see it if You want something light-hearted or fluffy, or only enjoy large, fully-staged productions.

Theatre is Easy
November 11th, 2016

"A well-acted and timely adaptation of the famous novel examining oligarchy and mind control...Director Dave Stishan effectively creates the environment of a dystopia along with the design team...The actors portray with convincing clarity the homogeneous members of a society that praises conformity and loathes individuality...Orwell's '1984' presents a stark, clear image of what the 'worst' would be like, and shows how close it is to our reality."
