Guy Masterson’s internationally acclaimed solo adaptation of Orwell’s timeless masterpiece returns to Lakeside from the 2006 Edinburgh Festival and prior to a World tour. Gary Shelford’s magnificent solo performance of Orwell’s classic satire has to be seen to be believed! Using nothing but a wooden box, some amazing sound effects and brilliant physical and vocal dexterity, Shelford ignites this famous yarn bringing a modern sinister relevance to Orwell’s masterwork leaving an indelible imprint in the consciousness. This theatrical gem is a tour de force of physical performance storytelling and one of the most electrifying performances you are ever likely to witness. “Simply brilliant!” Times Please note this event has now sold out.
