What people are saying about George Orwell's 1989

“Just reading this play had me laughing so hard there were tears in my eyes; I can't even imagine the effect in person. Hilarious and wonderful; a "wish I had thought of that first" kind of play.”
- Jordan Elizabeth Henry, Playwright
“What a great play. Loved the Taylor Swift as Big Sister. Frightfully funny for a horror fest (if you're not a Swift Fan) and one of pure comedy genius (if you are!). I hover between the two so enjoyed it from both viewpoints. Do yourself a favor and lay down the notebook and read this play today!” 
- Lee Lawing, Playwright
“Such a fantastically inventive comedic take. So enjoyed reading it, would love to see it on stage. It's sure to have an audience erupt with belly laughs! Wonderful for any play festival line-up.”
- Kel Vance, Playwright
