2020 is a busy year for us here at Mangled Yarn and although there is a global pandemic we are still battling on. Plans are being made and we are regularly adding online content to our social media platforms to ensure we are always spinning yarns!
Here’s a little taster of what’s ahead for the company!
We have been working with The Place Theatre Bedford and the incredible Alex Levene on this exciting new take on the Orwell novel that has never been more relevant.
Looking through the eyes of social media influence and the looming threat of state surveillance we relocate 1984 to the present day. It is Big Brother as you have never seen him before, fabulous and menacing in equal parts, Big Brother and his frighteningly funk backing band the Double Thinkers have total control over proceedings; whether it’s controlling your every word and thought or belting out all the hits from the year 1984 in the Crackdown Cabaret.
We explore sexual identity, the rights the individual and the how Orwell’s dystopian nightmare is beginning to look like reality in the shape of one disturbingly incredible night out.
