The Race to 1984
This is an imaginative ‘script in hand’ showcase of moving and highly-entertaining new play, The Race to 1984, directed by Richard Baron.
Based on real events, The Race to 1984 uses Orwell’s gift for humour and plain-speaking to uncover fascinating new details of his complex relationship with the brilliant women who inspired his work, including his first wife Eileen, who died tragically young, and the untold romantic story of the Scottish doctor’s wife who, against her husband’s orders, smuggled Orwell secret supplies of writing materials to help him complete his never-more-relevant masterpiece. There will be an opportunity to talk to director and cast after the semi-staged peformances.
Saturday 12 November @2pm and @7pm
