Greenwich Theatre presented ‘One Georgie Orwell’ by Peter Cordwell and Carl Picton, featuring original text by George Orwell.

Following its world premiere at Greenwich Theatre in April 2012, this was a one-off opportunity to catch what is probably the first plain-speaking theatrical celebration of George Orwell, an amazing human being who became a writer because “there was some lie I want to expose… and my initial concern is to get a hearing”.
Featuring excerpts from ‘Animal Farm’, ‘Keep The Aspidistra Flying’, ‘1984’ and others, along with a host of unforgettable songs, this was a uniquely theatrical evening which celebrated the life and work of one of this country’s most revered writers.
