The show places past, present and future in constant dialogue. At times it feels like a vision of tomorrow, and at others like something half-remembered.

Chloe Lamford's clever design offers the retro alongside the futuristic

 

★★★★★THE GUARDIAN

 

Winston and Julia’s arrest and the torture of re-education that follows, against a backdrop of clinical white, gas masks, guns and boots, are the more appalling for their use of intermittent blackout, during which we helpfully create our own mental horrors.

★★★★★ THE TIMES

 

★★★★★THE TELEGRAPH

 

Designed with canny institutional joylessness by Chloe Lamford, the production does continue to meld distinctions among past, present and future.
