George Orwell’s "1984"
7:30 p.m. April 1-2; 2 p.m. April 3
Evansville Civic Theatre, 717 N. Fulton Ave.
This retelling of George Orwell’s iconic novel pulls no punches when depicting life under an oppressive regime. Adapted by Robert Owens, Wilton E. Hall, and William A. Miles, the stage production of “1984” forces audiences to reckon with how far they are willing to go for love, individuality, and freedom. A second weekend of performances takes place April 8-10.
