“This version effectively argues that Orwell’s messages remain as relevant as they were in 1949, perhaps even more so.” Los Angeles Downtown News 

ABOUT THIS SHOW

Based on the iconic novel by George Orwell, Sullivan’s provocative adaption is not your father’s 1984. Winston Smith, a cog in the giant machine state of Oceania, is physically and mentally under the eye of Big Brother. He is caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence.

CONTENT ADVISORY

1984 includes strong language, violence and sexual situations.
