FAHRENHEIT 451 to Play PACE Center, 3/21
Freedom of speech is as much of a hot topic today, as it was in 1953 when Ray Bradbury wrote one of the most revered novels of the twentieth-century. Aquila Theater's production of Fahrenheit 451 comes to the PACE Center on March 21.
Aquila is the foremost producer of touring classical theatre in the United States, visiting 60-70 American cities per year. 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. This dystopian tale of a bleak future where literature and knowledge are on the edge of extinction, 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.
The performance is on March 21, at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $20/$25.
Fahrenheit 451 is produced by special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois.
