The One World Corporation has long been governing the Earth, but when its leader Roberta makes contact with someone from her past, the corporation's illusory world starts to unravel and everyone - leaders and citizens alike - struggles to navigate the imminent decline of a constructed society.
Inspired by the classic novel 1984, this original musical conveys the dark and disturbing tale of a dystopian future as predicted by Orwell, and was commissioned as the primary creative project of Murdoch University PhD candidates Sarah Courtis and Ellin Sears.
