By Ray Bradbury

A Program of Young Audiences New York

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
7:30 p.m. at Jones Theatre at Daggy Hall

Adapted verbatim from the classic dystopian novel, this solo performance presents a frightening vision of a world awash in information but rejecting critical thought.

In this future society, firemen don't put out fires; they start them in order to burn books. Returning from work one night, fireman Guy Montag meets his new neighbor, a teenage girl whose free-thinking ideals and liberating spirit cause him to question his life and his own perceived happiness.

Fahrenheit 451 offers a sobering look at our modern world, and hope for a better future.

A WSU Common Reading event!

The 2017/2018 season is presented with support from
Residence Inn by Marriott Courtyard by Marriott
