Barnstormers Theatre in Ridley Park presents “1984” Sept. 15-23. Based on the iconic novel by George Orwell, “1984” is 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. With the brutal “help” of four Party Members, Winston is forced to confess his Thought crimes before an unseen inquisitor, and the audience — which acts as a silent witness to his torture. A ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century.
Performances are Sept. 15-16; 21-23 @ 8 p.m. and Sept. 17 @ 2 p.m.
