1984 - AQUILA THEATRE

Aquila Theatre brings one of the great novels of the 20th Century to the stage—George Orwell’s dystopian 1984—in a chilling and timely production. The cautionary tale is set in the super-state Oceania, a totalitarian regime ruled by the “Party” and its leader, “Big Brother,” who employ the “Thought Police” to quell individualism and independent thinking.
As our modern world grapples with the threats and benefits of technological integration, Aquila Theatre’s production of 1984 provides a space to appreciate the value of individual thought - an evocative and timely narrative of personal freedom against political repression.
Ready to join the “Party?” For a limited time, “Big Brother” is offering a special ticket price. See 1984 – AQUILA THEATRE for just $19.84 + fees.*
“Aquila’s productions are beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect” - The New Yorker
