Lent Week 3
WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
The world is crumbling and the British people have turned to The Party to keep them safe. Britons have willingly sacrificed their rights and freedoms in order to protect themselves from an unknown yet ever-present threat. War constantly rages with an unidentifiable enemy; opposition is forbidden and futile; dissent is a crime and defiance is treason.
Adapted by Matthew Dunster, Orwell's classic novel is brought into the 21st Century to show a horrifyingly dystopian vision of our future.
