In this well-known dystopian drama, firemen don't put out fires, they start them in order to burn books and prevent books from falling into the hands of those in society. Instead of thinking, reading and learning, people spend all their time watching television and listening to radio feed constantly available to them.
When Guy Montag meets a Clarisse, a girl who asks questions and makes him think, his world turns upside down. When Montag slips a book into his pocket and begins to read, will he ever be able to go back to his regular life? What does Bradbury's classic tale have to teach us today?
Starring Ryan St. Martin, Paul Giliarmis, Camisa Hensel, Simone Barron, Rebecca O'Neil, Jean Sleight, Sean Morrone, Justin Tinsley, Rita Baxter, Sarita Benson, Anthony Floyd, Nick Horiatis, and Dawn Cornell, this show is full of tension and will leave you questioning your own understanding of censorship.
Directed by Ted Jaquith and Produced by Woody Lotts.
