Big Brother, Thought Police, doublethink, omnipresent surveillance. Portraying rebellious romantics Winston Smith and Julia in this classic dystopian novel, narrators Andrew Garfield and Cynthia Erivo lead a crew of inspired English actors in creating a full-cast, filmlike 21st-century reimagining of one of the twentieth century's most important novels. The production is peppered with eerie urban soundscapes and a haunting musical score. Andrew Scott gives a terrific turn as the enigmatic O'Brien, who leads our heroes into a world of doubt and betrayal. Best of all, the book's many themes, such as the manipulative destruction of language and thought and political gaslighting, are borne out through Garfield's intimate monologues and the crisp, challenging dialogues between so many of the characters. 1984--sounding more dystopian than ever.
