Pendragon Theatre's 1984

A ferocious and provocative adaptation of Orwell's iconic novel.

1984 by George Orwell adapted for the stage by Michael Gene Sullivan

"A ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century."

For a limited run, Pendragon Theatre will be presenting a stage adaptation of 1984, August 25 thru Sept. 3, before touring the North Country this fall. The adaptation, by Michael Gene Sullivan, based on the iconic novel by George Orwell, tells the story of Winston Smith, a cog in the giant machine state of Oceania. Physically and mentally under the omnipresent eye of Big Brother, Winston has been caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence. With the brutal "help" of four Party Members, Winston is forced to confess his Thoughtcrimes before an unseen inquisitor, and the audience -- which acts as a silent witness to his torture. This adaptation is not the version currently on Broadway which has been gathering much attention due to torture scenes causing unpleasant physical reactions from audiences. While the torture scenes are much less graphic, the Pendragon production is no less powerful.
