Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 11/13/2016
Different Stages opens its 2016-2017 season with Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. Set in the twenty-fourth century, Fahrenheit 451 is a gripping tale at once disturbing and poetic about a fireman, Guy Montag, whose job is to destroy all books by fire. He never questions the destruction, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television “family”. But when he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, her inquisitive nature and humanist philosophy prompt him to question the emptiness of his life.
