“A Literature to Life Stage Presentation of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451”

November 14, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Adapted verbatim from the class 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. Presented by WSU Performing Arts, this event is free to all WSU students with ID.  Verification of attendance available.
