The Boston Children’s Theatre is pleased to present George Orwell’s 1984, adapted by Robert Owens, Wilton E. Hall Jr, and William A. Miles, and directed by Burgess Clark and Toby Schine

About 1984:

Winston Smith is a low-ranking member of the ruling Party in London, in the nation of Oceania. Everywhere Winston goes, the Party watches him through telescreens.  Everywhere he looks he sees the face of the Party’s seemingly omniscient leader —Big Brother. The Party controls everything in Oceania, even the people’s history and language.  Even thinking rebellious thoughts is illegal.  Winston dares to express his thoughts in a diary even though he knows — big brother is watching.

Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
