In George Orwell's 1984, it is April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is watching him — and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye. George Orwell's fiction is often said to be our reality. The definitive book of the 20th century presented as a stage thriller.

Directed by Kevin Sosbe

A sneak peak excerpt from Reviewer Mary Hembree's of Citizen News article on 1984 coming out this week.

"this is magnificent regional theatre. The actors are at the top of their art learning lines and going to rehearsals after hours at other endeavors. They do it for the sheer love of theatre. Attending a performance at The Sherman Playhouse is not only entertaining, it’s supporting local art and we must do that to keep it for ourselves and future generations."

Thanks Mary for your continued support!
