Kilgore College Theater Department will present “1984”, a stage adaptation of the 1949 novel of the same name by George Orwell, Oct. 10-13 in Van Cliburn Auditorium on the KC campus. The play’s themes of authoritarianism, conformity and love in the midst of a dystopia are as relevant today as when the novel was first written, said director and theater instructor Micah Goodding. “Where it takes place is a time that is not our own. It’s been cut away from the past and divorced from the future. That’s what makes it so hard for the characters in it, for them to find their identities. They don’t know what the truth is,” Goodding said.
