1984 at World Under Wonder, Veterans Day in Perkinsville

George Orwell's 1984, Nov. 8-10

World Under Wonder presents George Orwell’s 1984 Adapted by Robert Owens, Wilton E. Hall, Jr., and William A. Miles, Jr. Performances Friday, November 8, 7pm; Saturday, November 9, 7pm; and Sunday, November 10, 2pm Tickets General Admission: $10 Students, Seniors, and Veterans: $5  (Free to $20 level WUW members) Based on the iconic novel by George Orwell, 1984 brings us the story of Winston Smith, a cog in the giant machine state of Oceania. Physically and mentally under the omnipresent eye of Big Brother, Winston has been caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence. World Under Wonder brings to the stage of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century. 1984 is a powerful examination of what might have been – and may still be. It is a work of fiction, not prophesy. It is an extrapolation of the history and political philosophies of the twentieth century. This production is a complex multi-media piece merging live performance and video.
