Watch Big Brother watching you

"A chilling, ingenious 101 minutes. I urge you to see this show."

- The Times
This critically acclaimed production is based on the classic by George Orwell. Follow Winston Smith as he tries to disengage from the controlling surroundings of the dystopian universe he lives in. Winston tries desperately to escape the control of a surreal dictatorship…only to find himself in Room 101 facing his greatest fear. This is a spine-tinglingly good production. The Playhouse Theatre London is located in the heart of the city, near the famous Trafalgar Square with its towering bronze lions guarding Nelson’s Column and an array of London hotels. It originally opened as the Royal Avenue Theatre in 1882 and hosted comic operas and burlesques in its early years. Famous past productions include My Name is Rachel Corrie, Hedda Gabler and Dreamboats and Petticoats. ★★★★★ – The Times ★★★★★ – Time Out ★★★★☆ – The Guardian ★★★★☆ – The Telegraph ★★★★☆ – Evening Standard ★★★★☆ – Whats On Stage ★★★★☆ – London Theatre ★★★★☆ – British Theatre This production contains loud noises, gunshots, bright and flashing lights, and scenes which some audience members, particularly those of a nervous disposition, may find distressing.
