In 1984, George Orwell created a dystopian landscape to examine the consequences of a totalitarian government ruling Great Britain. In this adaptation, the people are in a perpetual state of war and under constant surveillance. The Party subtly controls all aspects of its citizens’ lives, down to what they think, believe, and remember. In an atmosphere of lies and suppression, one man explores memory and love to find meaning and hope. Winston Smith and Julia risk their lives for love and freedom of expression. How does your past inform your future? In our current politically challenging and unsettling time, TU’s multi-media production of 1984 brings this question into shockingly sharp focus. Directed by Laura Skoch.
