Orwell’s Dystopian Classic Heads to the Stage at the Capstone Theatre

Sell a Door Theatre Company is set to return to Liverpool’s Capstone Theatre with an exciting new performance of George Orwell’s definitive classic, 1984. Matthew Dunster’s faithful adaptation of George Orwell’s dystopian Science Fiction novel follows on from the company’s previous tour of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Winston Smith rewrites history for the Ministry of Truth, but when he’s handed a note that says simply ‘I love you’ by a woman he hardly knows, he decides to risk everything in a search for the real truth. In a world where cheap entertainment keeps the proles ignorant but content, where war without end is always fought and the government is always watching, can Winston possibly hold onto what he feels inside? Or will he renounce everything, accept the Party’s reality and learn to love Big Brother?

1984 is a prime example of Orwellian fiction and is a staple of every “must read” list and combined withSell a Door’s reputation for high quality theatre, this is set be an exciting,  unmissable night of entertainment.
