1984 @ Playhouse Theatre / until 23rd August 2014

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors:
Mon-Sat 19:30
Wed and Sat matinee 14:30

@ Playhouse Theatre, Northumberland Ave, London WC2N 5DE

Tickets: from £19.84 book online

Due to unprecedented demand, the production has been extended until 23 August 2014 (previously 19th July 2014).

George Orwell’s 1984, published in 1949, is one of the most influential novels in recent history, with its chilling depiction of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance and incessant public mind-control.  Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwell’s fiction is often said to be our reality.

Filtering the spirit and the ambition of the novel through the lens of contemporary culture, this radical new staging explores surveillance culture, identity and how thinking you can fly might actually be the first step to flying.

#KopparBeard takeover hits The Kopparberg Urban Forest as the incredibly popular pop-up woodland bar closes its doors for the summer after five weeks of music, food and drink.

Headlining the night will be super cool Danish songstress MØ.

Over the past five weeks forest-goers have got down with Kelis, been
serenaded by the dreamy Lucy Rose, felt nostalgic with former Supergrass
frontman Gaz Coombes, danced under an East London sunset to Little Dragon
and practiced their best Kanye West impression to the sounds of Gold
Digger at Hip Hop Karaoke.

Fashion designer, musician and all-round auteur Danny Passarella turns his senses to art in his out-of-this-world debut exhibition.

The ‘Fantasy Scenes’ in question are ten pieces of wholly original art photography. Their backgrounds feature Danny’s home town of Whitley Bay in the north-east of England, while the subjects themselves are retro arcade machines from the industry’s salad days.

The sci-fi-esque images evoke the wonder of adolescence, and call to mind the importance of visionary thinking to a civilised society.
