1984

BY GEORGE ORWELL

Based on shake & stir’s critically-acclaimed adaptation of Orwell’s classic, 1984 is back in 2020 due to popular demand. Oceania; a Nation perpetually at war, where cameras watch every move, Thought Police roam the streets and Big Brother rules. A place Winston Smith calls home. What happens when Winston pursues a forbidden love affair with a mysterious woman in an attempt to rebel and maintain some control over his otherwise totally controlled life?
