Fahrenheit 451 performed by Aquila Theatre
September 24, 2013
The year is 1953. Sci-fi writer Ray Bradbury pens Fahrenheit 451 and—with startling clarity—creates an imaginary world that has come to pass in our daily lives today. Flat screen monitors, interactive devices, ear buds and the blurry line between censorship and apathy.
Bold and inventive. Accessible and engaging. Using multimedia, nationally renowned Aquila Theatre ignites Bradbury’s world where firemen burn books and refugees secretly memorize them. All the while, we are invited to examine that world and our own.
