Paper Zoo first performed Alan Lyddiard's adaptation of
George Orwell's
1984 on 3 and 4 June 2009 in the Pictureville
Cinema within the National Media Museum. More dates below.
Published in 1949, George Orwell’s seminal novel Nineteen
Eighty-Four
predicted a dystopian future. Sixty years later, many
would argue that Orwell’s vision has come true. In the year that
we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the publication of
Nineteen
Eighty-Four,
the National Media Museum is proud to present a
unique live theatrical production of the novel in collaboration with
Bradford-based theatre company Paper Zoo. Making use of
Pictureville Cinema’s Cinerama screen with live video projection,
the production will encapsulate the drama and fear ever-present
in the play and provide the audience with a unique insight into the
mind of George Orwell.
The production will include an interval. Some scenes may be
inappropriate for children.

It was with great sadness that we heard
of the passing of Sir John Hurt - our Big
Brother - he was so kind and generous
in his support for our Company, giving
freely of his most precious gift;his time.
Sir John was one of the most versatile
and gifted actors of the last 50 years, and
it was a privilege to share the stage and
screen with him.
We were all blessed to have met him.
