Year of the Rat is unlikely to delight the Inner Hebrides tourist board with its stark depiction of life on the isolated island of Jura. It was there that George Orwell completed the classic Nineteen Eighty-Four in 1948. Roy Smiles has taken a few liberties in Year of the Rat, but his well-observed collection of strands from, and references to, Orwell's life, personality and fiction allows him to assemble an entertaining and somehow real play that resonates beyond Big Brother and Room 101.

Since his first emergence as a prodigy back in the 1950s, Lorin Maazel has established himself as a somewhat uncanny necromancer among conductors, while invariably delivering performances of glittering technical proficiency and vividness. Whether these have always transcended a certain narcissistic coldness is another matter. One would not, in any case, have readily associated him with the warmth and inwardness of Schubert and Bruckner.
