In George Orwell's 1984, it is April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is watching him — and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye. George Orwell's fiction is often said to be our reality. The definitive book of the 20th century presented as a stage thriller.

At the end of World War II, Matt Friedman, a Jewish immigrant who has spent his life keeping others at a distance, returns to the small town where he first met Sally Talley. Nothing like her conservative Protestant family and neighbors, Sally is a nurse with deep misgivings about the country's future.
