“Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury. The award-winning author adapted his powerful novel for the stage and presents an intense vision of a future where books are illegal. His insightful drama depicts the struggle of a professional book-burner, a “fireman,” who comes to realize the danger of his work. Will he risk everything for the right to think and communicate ideas?
