Anthony Burgess's A CLOCKWORK ORANGE

by Anthony Burgess

Mar 21 2012 - Apr 21 2012

50 years after the publication of Burgess's disturbing little masterpiece, its portrait of a corrupt state, a bankrupt civil society, and a populace in fear of feral youth seems urgently familiar. In a nation like this, how should young people behave? There is, at least, much pleasure to be had in violence, drugs and debauchery. Volcano's exuberant production stays true to Burgess's original in its cut-throat inventiveness and in asking whether it is better to be forced to be good, or to be free to do evil. What's it going to be then, eh?

“Volcano's startling version is viciously sharp. Bleak yet funny, horrific and uncomfortably attractive.” ****The Guardian
