The Alley Theatre's taped performance of "1984", adapted by Michael Gene Sullivan and directed by Rob Melrose, is now available to stream online. A limited number of tickets are available to Houston Public Library MY Link card holders.

Based on George Orwell’s futuristic novel, "1984" brings us the story of Winston Smith and a stark vision of a world in which freedom of action, word, and thought are controlled by Big Brother. How far are we from realizing Orwell’s nightmare? Are we already there? Can there be more than one truth, more than one set of facts? As the story of Winston’s fight for individual identity unfolds, the vision grows increasingly terrifying as the world it depicts grows uncomfortably familiar. A ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century.
