You might recognise the opening line from the George Orwell classic, 1984. It's been read by millions and in recent years transformed into theatre. The play has had great success in Broadway and the West End and it will be shown in New Zealand next year.

Associate director Corey McMahon is in Auckland for auditions and talks to Jesse about the show that has caused some viewers to vomit and even faint.
