Aquila Theatre in Fahrenheit 451
Artistic Director, Peter Meineck
Friday, November 1
Langford Auditorium 8:00 p.m.
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 in 1953, 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. Aquila Theatre brings new life to this visionary parable of a society gone awry.
“The classics made relevant with superb acting and clever staging…the excellent Aquila Theatre, an extraordinarily inventive and disciplined outfit.” – The New Yorker
