There was a moment I'll never forget from the Q&A I hosted after last night's performance of Stephen Clark's Le Grand Mort, starring Julian Clary at the West End's Trafalgar Studios.

Mrs Orwell Q&A podcast and photos: What might George Orwell have written after 1984?

Sales of George Orwell's 1984 surged by a staggering 9,500% after the election of Donald Trump to become Amazon's biggest seller. Orwell himself died, at the age of 46, in January 1950, just seven months after 1984 was published. What might he have written if he’d lived longer?
