George Orwell's 1984, Big Brother is watching

A longtime fan-favorite, our Midnight Radio series enters its 7th season with George Orwell’s 1984. 1984 will transport you into the intense world of Big Brother, doublethink, and The Ministry of Truth.

See What Everyone Else Is Saying

  • “Midnight Radio series: an adaptation of George Orwell’s eerie masterpiece 1984, in which Big Brother always is watching.”

    – Elvira DiPaolo-Hoff, Pittsburgh Magazine
  • “Get set to be transported to Airstrip One in Oceania for a surreal saga of war, government surveillance and dictatorship. Using the age-old art of radio to bring Orwell’s seminal science fiction book to life in eerie new ways, the chilling production will take the form of a classic 1940s radio broadcast with patrons playing the role of the live studio audience.”

    – Jennifer Baron, NEXTpittsburgh
  • "Currently in the middle of mounting George Orwell’s 1984 in Bricolage’s signature Midnight Radio format, the dystopian story was recently mirrored by a form of um, dystopian marketing – if there wasn’t such a thing before, there is, now! If taking to the streets with immersive theater is where it’s at, then why not do the same with promotions?"
