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.
