“…written by company member Walter L. Newton, this thought-provoking new staging is intended
to give us renewed pause that, with government intrusions like the Patriot Act, we're barreling down
path.” (John Moore - The
gripping climax to this classic tale of now familiar Orwellian warnings and startlingly close-to-home
examples of Newspeak propaganda.” (Bob Bows - Variety Magazine)
“Walter L. Newton’s stage adaptation of George Orwell’s prophetic classic is sensationally well crafted.
The tightly knit script is faithful to the essence of the book and translates to the theatre with power. The
Orwellian concepts of Thought Police, New Speak and Double Think are put forth with articulate correctness.
Mr. Newton’s script will soon be snatched up by theatres all across the country. This is your chance to see its
world premiere production.” (David Marlowe – Denver Out Front Magazine)
