About this show

Award-winning playwright Joe Sutton imagines what might have happened if one of the 20th Century's most celebrated authors, George Orwell, had actually visited America.

In the first years after World War II the author of Animal Farm is chaperoned during an American book tour by a fetching young woman, whose job is to dissuade Orwell from telling Americans why he is a proud socialist.

Following its World Premiere at Northern Stage, Orwell in America makes its New York Premiere starring Jamie Horton (long-time leading actor from the Tony Award-winning Denver Center Theater Company) in the title role.
