CITY OF KATY (Covering Katy News) – The Katy High School Theater Company Sept. 26, 27, 28 and 29 at the Katy High School Performing Arts Center.
Based on the iconic novel by George Orwell, 1984 brings us the story of Winston Smith, a cog in the giant machine state of Oceania.
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 “Thoughtcrimes” before an unseen inquisitor, and the audience — which acts as a silent witness to his torture.
It is a ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century.
