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

One thought on “1984 by George Orwell – Directed by Liz Postlethwaite

  1. Les Hurst and I met Liz Postlethwaite and the cast yesterday evening. They were very keen to learn from Les who gave all some insights into their characters in the play.
    We are going to the night they are in Wigan on the 14th with Richard Blair.
    I am sure it will be an excellent evening, and I would encourage anyone who can to go to the show when it on near them.
