A searing new smash-hit adaptation of Orwell’s classic makes its regional debut with the Founding Creative Directors of Blink and LumenoCity joining the creative team.

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company continues its 25th Anniversary Season at The Otto M. Budig Theater with “1984”, a new adaptation of George Orwell’s classic novel by Robert Icke and Duncan MacMillan. “1984” runs October 12 – November 3 and is directed by Producing Artistic Director Brian Isaac Phillips and features Resident Ensemble Members Justin McCombs and Sara Clark.

In a dystopian future where persecution masquerades as patriotism and surveillance as security, the shadowy government entity known only as Big Brother watches your every move. When Winston Smith falls in love with the lovely but mysterious Julia, he stumbles upon a secret resistance movement and soon finds himself in crisis, tumbling down a rabbit hole and grappling with everything he thought that he believed.

The immersive experience will begin outside of the theater- on the building and in the windows. 1984 runs October 12 – November 3. Single ticket prices range from $14-$54. To purchase tickets or for more information, go online at Cincinnati Shakespeare Theater also offers AAA and group discounts.
