1984! The Musical!
This original Australian musical takes Orwell’s classic and finds laughter in the darkest placesTap-dancing in torture chambers, rats with razzle-dazzle, Big Brother with even bigger star power –1984! The Musical! has it all! Join us on our dystopic romp: a light-hearted comedy about oppression of the human spirit (with songs!). Will Winston and Julia start a revolution, or will they yield to their oppressors? Either way, they'll sing while trying!
In a world where “alternative facts,” have normalised Doublethink and our phones collect our data and watch us like Telescreens, Orwell’s dystopia has never felt closer to home. Equal parts soul-crushing and side-splitting, this is the musical for our times.
