1984 As a playwright Michael Gene Sullivan adaptation of George Orwell's 1984 will be playing at the Williamston Theatre, Williamston, Michigan March 23rd - April 23 and at the Drama Theatre on Podal, Kiev, Ukraine Fall, 2017. Script available at Playscripts, Inc.

Winston Smith is a cog in the giant machine of the State. Physically and mentally under the omnipresent eye of Big Brother, Winston has been caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence. With the brutal "help" of four Party Members, Winston is forced to confess his "Thought-Crimes" before an unseen inquisitor, and the audience -- which acts as a silent witness to his torture. This is a ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century.
