Today we are talking with Sue Flack, director and actress at Escapade Theatre Company, and the new production entitled 1984 (Big Brother is watching you). An accomplished alumna of the London Drama Centre, Sue Flack has worked extensively as an actress and presenter with the BBC, ITV and Channel 4.
1984, originally written by George Orwell and published in 1949, depicts a haunting version of the future, with frighteningly accurate depictions of what society could become should it fall into the wrong hands. Since it’s original publication, many of the terms and concepts have since been introduced into common use. When you look it isn’t hard to see why, when aspects of Orwell’s world have become very real today, from doublethink to crimestop, to realitycontrol. This was merely a part of the reason Sue Flack decided to create a production of 1984.
The show is running May 19th, 2017 to June 11th, 2017 at the Versus Teatre, 179 Carrer de Los Castillejos, Barcelona.
