10. HOT TICKET: ORWELL'S 1984 AT THE ALMEIDA
A new stage adaptation of George Orwell's classic dystopian novel, 1984, has opened at the Almeida Theatre, London. In an imagined oppressive future Britain a man commits the subversive acts of thinking, writing a diary, and falling in love, under the gaze of Big Brother. "Ingenious," says The Times.
