The play centers around Winston Smith, living under the totalitarian rule of the Party, who has the idea of writing a diary. It is a crime punishable by death and there is no way of knowing if he is being watched. He imagines two futures – in one, a readership in a free society thinks of him as a hero; in the other, he is caught, executed, and forgotten. Perhaps both things are true. That day, during the obligatory “Two Minutes Hate,” he wonders who else might be harboring thoughts of rebellion, and who may be working for the Thought Police. Winston starts the diary writing the year as far as it knows it – 1984.
