With American President Donald Trump slowly but surely fucking rapidly driving his nation towards quasi-totalitarianism, it’s not exactly a surprise that George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four is en vogue once more.

‘1984’ Is Heading To Broadway, As If Reality Ain’t Cutting It Any More

The 67-year-old fictitious guide to being crushed by a dystopic government has rocketed back into best-sellers lists, even though we all kind of assumed copies were already doled out to 14-year-olds on a mandatory basis. 

Now, the modern classic is being presented as a play, with Winston, Julia, the rat & Co. appearing on Broadway from June this year. 

Produced by Sonia Friedman and Scott Rudin – the folks behind Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – the already established adaptation will be hitting stages with a, uh, currently redacted cast. 

Seriously. Here’s the press release. Cute, no?

The odds of Vice President Mike Pence rocking up to this one a la Hamilton seem doubleplus ungood, tbh.
