Nineteen Eighty Four (George Orwell)

Went with Michael, David and Jacqueline to see Nineteen Eighty Four at the ADC Theatre. It was an ambitious production by the Amateur Dramatic Club which worked very well. Ed Rice was super as Winston Smith, as was David F. Walton and O’Brien. The play followed the books well, and I had forgotten how bleak the ending is… The first half ended with the lovers being discovered by Big Brother, which was very dramatic and shocking after all the celebration of their ‘freedom’.

We went over for some nice Deuchars IPA at the Burleigh Arms
