In a glass city composed of absolute straight lines, ruled over by the all-powerful ‘Benefactor’, the citizens of OneState live their lives without passion or agency. That is until D-503, a man tasked with bringing the Revolution to the stars, meets a remarkable woman. Supressed in Russia for decades, Zamyatin’s dystopian masterpiece prophesised the worst excesses of the Soviet Union, while creating an enduring and vivid vision of what future societies might look like – a vision that would inspire George Orwell’s ‘1984’ and many subsequent dystopias.
