Winston Smith is sick of losing. The major sports teams in Chicago let him down time and time again. He's through with it. Or is he? What will O'Brien do? Can Julia save him? Does any of it matter with Papa Bear always watching? Factory Theater's 1985 imagines an Orwellian Chicago where disavowing oneself from team loyalty isn't easy and is perhaps, impossible. If the Chicago Bears win, What will be the cost?
Coming on the heels of Chicago's failed Olympic bid, Factory Theater's 1985 takes a look at the culture and the heart of a city that demands victory, but rarely achieves it. What happened to the Cubs in '84? What treachery existed behind the '79 Disco Demolition? How did the Eastland Disaster save the NFL? Why did the '85 Bears lose that game in Miami? Find out the answers in Factory Theater's 1985.
