To celebrate its 30th anniversary, and in reaction to the recent passing of the controversial 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, The Actors Gang are bringing back their theatrical production of George Orwell’s 1984 for a limited run, beginning Saturday Feb. 25th. Directed by Tim Robbins and adapted by Michael Gene Sullivan, the play originally ran in 2006 to much critical acclaim.
From the Actors Gang site: “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.”
This looks to be terrifying and good. The shows will run at the Ivy Substation in Culver City on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and the tickets range from $15-$25. (I’m not sure if the discount for preview shows mentioned on this flyer is still relevant but you can try it. Previews began last Friday.)
