Fahrenheit 451

“Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whitman, Friday Faulkner, burn 'em to ashes, then burn the ashes.  That's our official slogan.”  451.jpg

Written by Ray Bradbury

subversive theatre turns up the heat with one of the all time great subversive tales!  we're proud to kick off our 16th season of radical theatre with this rarely-produced stage adaptation of the watershed anti-authoritarian Novel.​

FAHRENHEIT 451 takes us into a sinister future where firemen are called upon to burn the true enemy of any authoritarian state: books!  but one unsuspecting fireman is about to discover that there’s much more to life than what the well-ordered regime spoon feeds the populace… and join a bizarre resistance faction where bookworms protect their favorite stories in the most surreal of ways...

​adapted for the stage by Ray Bradbury himself, this unrelenting odyssey offers an urgent wake up call with a dizzying assault on the senses of intense light, sound, costume, and video to conjure up the enveloping futuristic setting where power and spectacle have replaced the last vestiges of human decency and freedom of thought.
