ABOUT THE SHOW
This authorized stage adaptation is true to the novel in which Orwell depicts with great power the horrors of man’s fate in a society where Big Brother is always watching—where everything that is not prohibited is compulsory. A prophetic tale not too far from our own place in society. Orwell himself once said, “I do not believe that the kind of society I describe necessarily will arrive, but I believe that something resembling it could arrive. The moral to be drawn from the dangerous nightmare situation is a simple one: Don’t let it happen. It depends on you.”

ABOUT interACT THEATRE PRODUCTIONS ON THE RUN
interACT is the theatre in residence at The Baird Cultural Arts Center in South Orange, NJ. In 2019, the entire Baird building is closing for extensive renovations and will remain closed for a few years until the project is complete. During this time, we are proud to have the support of South Orange Middle School and The Burgdorff Center in allowing us to perform our mainstage productions "On The Run" in their spaces. If you or anyone you know has a space that would be willing to house us for our remaining Feb/March main-stage production slot, please contact AD Nick Clarey at nick@interactproductions.org.

This program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and administered by the Essex County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs.
