Really convincing acting. I would have preferred going to a city like DC or Baltimore, since Olney is out in the suburbs, but this play was really good! I always meant to read the book, but never got around to it. Go... and learn about life...continued
Winston seemingly is enfolded in The Party. He works for the Ministry of Truth in the Records Department, destroying old stories which might show that the Big Brother was wrong and changes those stories to fit what is happening in the world today. When he gets home, another side of him emerges. He meets and falls in love with Julia, whom he first assumes is a loyal member of The Party and perhaps even works for the Thought Police. Together they suspect that there is an underground group led by the Enemy of the People, Emmanuel Goldstein. They want to join this group. They approach O’Brien, a member of the Inner Party, whom they suspect is a member of the underground. But Winston and Julia learn it’s difficult to hide from Big Brother.
About the Ticket Supplier: Olney Theatre Center
Located just north of Washington, D.C. in arts-rich Montgomery County, Maryland, Olney Theatre Center for the Arts offers a diverse array of professional productions year-round that enrich, nurture and challenge a broad range of artists, audiences and students. One of two state theaters of Maryland, OTC is situated on 14 acres in the heart of the beautiful Washington-Baltimore-Frederick “triangle,” within easy access of all three cities.
An award-winning regional theater, Olney Theatre Center operates under an Actors’ Equity Association Council of Stock Theaters (COST) contract, one of only three theaters in the country to operate under such a contract.
In addition to its mainstage season, which emphasizes 20th-century American classics, new works, area premieres, reinterpretations of classics and musical theater, OTC offers a wide range of programs and affiliations including: National Players, America’s longest running classical touring company (since 1949), which performs for high school and college audiences in over 25 states; Potomac Theatre Project, which offers experimental and alternative plays that explore provocative and challenging human situations, ideas and visions; special school performances of mainstage shows; a free Summer Shakespeare Festival; and post-show discussions.
