With its skill at creating innovative and modern productions of great works of literature, the Aquila Theatre will bring new life to Ray Bradbury’s visionary parable of a society gone awry. One of the most revered novels of the 20th century, Fahrenheit 451 is Ray Bradbury’s dystopian tale of a bleak future where literature and knowledge are on the edge of extinction. Considered a work of science fiction when first published, Fahrenheit 451 has been debated for decades - issues of censorship, the effects of technology on society and literature, and the means by which knowledge is gained - continue to be very real concerns today.
