About: Down & Out in Paris and London

Having survived Eton, young George Orwell disappears into the underworld of 1920s Paris in search for something to write about, while a modern-day journalist goes undercover on a London council estate at the turn of the millennium.

Multi-award winning New Diorama and PIT transfer their brand new show back to London after its premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015. A new, modern satire inspired by Orwell’s autobiographical tale and combined with Polly Toynbee’s 2003 book Hard Work, this production is written and directed by New Diorama Theatre's Artistic and Executive Director, David Byrne. Winners of Writers’ Guild and List Magazine Award for Drama and Les Enfants Terribles Prize.

Down & Out in Paris and London is a co-production between New Diorama Theatre, PIT and Greenwich Theatre in association with the Pleasance. The production is supported by Cockayne Foundation, Royal Victoria Hall Foundation, Unity Theatre Trust, Theatre Delicatessen and is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
