Dominic Cavendish's acclaimed monologue adaptation of George Orwell's Coming Up For Air-first seen at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2008-forms the first half of an unprecedented theatrical homage to Orwell created to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the novel and the 60th anniversary of his masterwork Nineteen Eighty-Four. As well as placing two of his best-loved essays-Shooting an Elephant and a Hanging-in a theatrical context, Cavendish has distilled the Ministry of Love interrogation scenes from Nineteen Eighty-Four into a short, sharp, shocking vignette of man's inhumanity to man. Together they demonstrate the enduring power and range of Orwell's writing, its observational clarity, bracing humour and political intensity.

Dominic Cavendish is deputy theatre critic for the Daily Telegraph and also its comedy critic. He has previously written extensively on theatre and the arts for the Independent, Time Out and the Big Issue magazine. He is the founding editor of theatrevoice.com, the biggest online resource for audio material about British theatre, now managed by the V&A museum. For 2009, he conceived and developed Urban Scrawl, a major new online drama series co-produced by Theatre503 and Rose Bruford College.
