Come and see George Orwell's 1984 in Culver City.
As a highlight of its 30th anniversary season, The Actors’ Gang will remount this amazing play which is directed by Tim Robbins.
Adapted by Michael Gene Sullivan and originally produced by The Gang in 2006, Tim Robbins’ production of 1984 has now been seen in over 40 US states and on five continents, including international tours to South America, Australia, China, Greece, Mexico and Europe.In celebration of our recent South American tour, as well as of 30 years of producing relevant, provocative theater – and in light of Congress’ National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 – the Gang is thrilled to remount 1984 at this time.
Written in 1948, Orwell envisioned a totalitarian future where love for Big Brother and the State is maintained and controlled at every level, including within the hearts and minds of the people. In this vision of our future, and perhaps our present, human love is the greatest revolutionary act.
Over the past six years, The Actors’ Gang’s production of George Orwell’s 1984 has been seen by thousands of people to rave reviews worldwide:
“The Actors’ Gang has succeeded in drawing our the parallels between Big Brother’s autocracy and today’s world of surveillance, manipulation of truth and fearmongering as a form of mass control.” The Age, Melbourne
“Multi-layered, intense and disturbing, exactly how it should be.” South China Morning Post
“Tense, searing and timely…” The Lincoln Journal Star
“Thunderous applause…fantastic players…” Barcelona Review
“GO! The action never slows!” LA Weekly
“Takes no prisoners in its scorched-earth campaign against indifference….has the concentrated but still devastating energy of a hand grenade.” LA Times
“Doubleplusgood!” The Australian
