George Orwell’s 1984
Elizabethtown High School Theatre Guild Brings Critically Acclaimed Production of George Orwell’s “1984” to Base249 on Sunday, June 26th.
Elizabethtown High School’s Theatre Guild produced George Orwell’s “1984” with all the intensity, fear, and human anguish you remember to astounded crowds and a stirring review in April. Due to high demand, they are bringing the production to Lexington for a second showing. Adapted by Robert Owens, Wilton E. Hall, Jr., and William A. Miles, Jr., and produced in special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois, this particular production focuses on the relationship between Winston, Julia, and O’Brien. This authorized stage adaptation is true to the novel in which Orwell depicts with great power the horrors of man’s fate in a society where Big Brother is always watching—where everything that is not prohibited is compulsory.
In a world where love is forbidden, thoughts are criminal, and your every movement is under video surveillance, can the spirit of man survive? Is there any hope for the future? Will Big Brother prevail or is love truly stronger than hate?
This extremely limited engagement simply cannot be missed. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students.
