2019 is the 70th anniversary of George Orwell’s 1984. The Ministry of Truth uncovers the cultural influence of 1984, from Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale to Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, from Alan Moore and David Lloyd’s V for Vendetta to David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs – and from the launch of Apple Mac to the reality TV landmark, Big Brother. In an era where digital surveillance and Big Data monitors our every move, where ‘fake news’ and ‘alternative facts’ are omnipresent, this is a timely reminder that Orwell’s dystopian vision is alive and kicking.Buy tickets
