Fahrenheit 451: the temperature at which books catch fire.
Intellectual? That's a swear word.
Drop discipline. Kill Latin. Poison English.
Damn grammar. Forget spelling.
Empty the theatres. Shut the cinemas.
Why? Don't want folks talking to each other on the way out of the plays, do you?
And there is a thing about burning.
Ray Bradbury. Fahrenheit 451. The Play.
Adapted by Ray Bradbury from his own critically acclaimed classic sci-fi novel of the same name, it is here staged in Scotland for the very first time.
Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which book paper ignites. This epic retro-futuristic drama tells the story of Guy Montag, a fireman. Montag has worked as a civil servant for ten years burning books but lately he has become increasingly unsure about what he is doing and about his vegetable like existence. It is not until he meets sixteen year old Clarisse, who is filled with strange ideas, that he is led into a dangerous and highly combustible situation. Now he must choose between continuing his non-existent existence and risking everything for the right to think.
This event has finished!
