Aquila Theatre’s Fahrenheit 451
Location: Pollak Theatre
Tickets: $25; $35
Pre-performance talk at 6:30 p.m. (free with ticket purchase)
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. Before the show, join the director and members of the cast in a discussion about censorship and the creative process of turning Bradbury’s novel into a theatrical production.
This tour engagement of Aquila Theatre Company is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
