A Little Lunch Music: 1984! The Musical!

When

Tuesday 24 November from 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Cost

Standard: $17.00

Drop in for City Recital Hall’s long running series of lunchtime concerts, A Little Lunch Music and spend your lunch hour listening to some of Australia’s finest musicians across musical genres.

Tap-dancing in torture chambers, rats with razzle-dazzle, Big Brother with even bigger star power –1984! The Musical! has it all! Join us on our dystopic romp: a light-hearted comedy in concert about totalitarianism, thought-police, surveillance states, and sex.

1984! The Musical!, which enjoyed its independent theatre debut at the New Theatre earlier this year, returns to the Sydney stage in a shorter, sharper (but no less devastating) concert version for A Little Lunch Music.

This brand new Australian musical serves as a timely reminder that ignorance is strength, freedom is slavery, and (most importantly) comedy is tragedy.

Will Winston start a revolution, or will he yield to his oppressors? Either way, he’ll sing while trying! There’s never been a better time for an all-singing, all-dancing celebration of Orwell’s masterpiece, with today’s rise of populism, alternative facts, and Nineteen Eighty-Four now being in the public domain.

Taking Orwell’s classic soul-crushing tale, and adding toe-tapping tunes, 1984! The Musical! is Nineteen Eighty-Four like you’ve never seen it before!

Pop open the Victory Gin and grab your tickets to this one-off lunchtime concert performance of 1984! The Musical! It’s double-plus-good!

Feel free to bring your lunch into the auditorium. Our Ground Level bar is stocked with a range of light meal options.

Presented by Co-Artistic Directors Kathryn Selby AM and City Recital Hall
