Based on one of the most revered novels of the 20th century, the Aquila Theatre Company’s production of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 questions the impact of information technology on literature and society. The ubiquity of cell phones, laptops and tablets makes Bradbury’s questions more relevant today than when the novel was first published in 1953. Bradbury’s uncanny but hopeful tale of censorship and the hypnotic effect of media comes alive in this brilliant stage presentation from New York’s “classically trained, modernly hip” Aquila Theatre.
