FLINT — Based on the dramatic novel by Ray Bradbury, The Whiting presents Fahrenheit 451 on April 26 at 7 p.m. and April 30 at 7 p.m.
This classic American novel presents a frightening vision of the future where firemen don’t put out fires — they start them in order to burn books. The show features 60 minutes of performance spanning the full breadth of this beloved American Science Fiction novel.
A master of character work, the actor tells the story from the perspective of the protagonist, Montag, and seamlessly transitions between the five other primary characters.
The adaptation presents a haunting look at the dangers of censorship in a modern world.
Surrounded by an interactive pre and post show discussion the audience will explore themes including Censorship and Civil Disobedience.
Performed by Rich Orlow and directed by Wynn Handman. All seats are just $30 and student rush tickets are available the day of the performance for $12.
