News West End Production of 1984, Adapted from George Orwell's Book, Extends Run
The West End production of Orwell's 1984, presented in a new adaptation created and co-directed by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan, has extended booking for five weeks through Aug. 23. It was previously booking to July 19.

It will embark on a second U.K. tour in the fall.

Originally produced by Headlong and Nottingham Playhouse, 1984 had its world premiere at Nottingham Playhouse in September 2013 and then toured. It subsequently received its London premiere at the Almeida Theatre Feb. 13. The West End run is co-produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Tulchin Barnter Productions in association with 1001 Nights, Rupert Gavin, JFL Theatricals/GHF Productions, Scott M. Delman, Scott & Brian Zeilinger/James Lefkowitz.

Orwell’s "1984," published in 1949, is one of the most influential novels in recent history, with its chilling depiction of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance and incessant public mind-control. Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwell’s fiction is often said to be our reality. Filtering the spirit and the ambition of the novel through the lens of contemporary culture, this radical new staging explores surveillance culture, identity and how thinking you can fly might actually be the first step to flying.

The production is designed by Chloe Lamford, with lighting by Natasha Chivers, sound by Tom Gibbons and video designed by Tim Reid.
