“When was the last time you felt scared at the theater? Not disturbed or perturbed or provoked, but scared?” –Time Out New York

Following four wildly successful U.K. runs, the “hair-raisingly vivid” (New York Magazine) stage adaptation of George Orwell’s masterpiece comes to New York in what The Huffington Post calls “an unforgettable jolt of high-voltage theatre that is literally shocking.” One of the most widely referenced and best known fiction titles of all time, 1984 has sold over 30 million copies worldwide and has been translated into more than 65 languages. Now, Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan have adapted this iconic novel into “101 minutes of high-energy terror.” (Entertainment Weekly)
