Win a pair of tickets to see 1984 at the Playhouse Theatre

Nominated for a 2014 Olivier Award for Best New Play, and after two sold-out runs, the critically acclaimed Headlong, Nottingham Playhouse and Almeida Theatre production of Orwell's dystopian masterpiece, 1984, transfers to the West End's Playhouse Theatre for a strictly limited season from 28 April.

April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is always watching.

Orwell's ideas have become our ideas; his fiction is often said to be our reality. The "definitive book of the 20th century" (The Guardian) is re-examined in a radical new staging exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell's vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.
