The Ministry of Truth is recruiting...

Enter the dramatic world of Manchester Central Library after hours and embark on an immersive journey inspired by George Orwell's dystopian novel.

This new immersive theatre production takes the audience inside a totalitarian state that monitors every act, word and thought of its citizens. In our era of social media and digital corporations - when everyone is tracked, analysed and influenced - Orwell's compelling vision has never been more pertinent. 2084 puts the audience at the heart of this iconic story and explores how fragile are the freedoms that we take for granted.

Welcome to the Party.

Over-18s only. Show duration: 90 minutes. The Party Bar will be open 30 minutes before show time, alongside live performance by Manchester soul singer, Charlie Cooper.

The show is directed by Joe Hufton (Secret Cinema, Alice’s Adventures Underground, Les Enfants Terrible) and features a unique soundscape by Dom James.
