Orwell depicts with great power the horrors of man's fate in a society where Big Brother is always watching -- where everything that is not prohibited is compulsory.
The times and the fact that we publish the authorized stage adaptation of this Orwell classic demand some comment, and we quote Orwell himself. I do not believe that the kind of society I describe necessarily will arrive, but I believe that something resembling it could arrive. The moral to be drawn from the dangerous nightmare situation is a simple one: Don't let it happen. It depends on you. Orwell depicts with great power the horrors of man's fate in a society where Big Brother is always watchingewhere everything that is not prohibited is compulsory. As your cast presents the play, you will be participating in a theatrical event that is both powerful and disturbingly provocative. Bare stage w/props.
