A reimagined classic A CLOCKWORK ORANGE: A PLAY WITH MUSIC Writer Anthony Burgess 16 August 11 September Alex and his teenage gang revel in danger, mayhem and a bit o the ol in-out-in-out, ideally with Beethoven blasting in their ears. Communicating in a strange slang dialect, they stalk the streets wreaking havoc without consequences until a drug-fuelled night of fun ends in murder, and Alex is finally busted and banged up. Hes given a choice: be brainwashed into good citizenship and set free, or face a lifetime inside.

But can goodness really exist when youre given no other choice? And what happens when Alex is released back into the society he once terrorised? Based on his provocative 1962 novella A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess play with music is a searing collection of Shakespearean prose and bad behaviour that tackles timeless questions about free will, adolescence, humanitys capacity for violence, and the power of the state. 50 years after Stanley Kubricks iconic film adaptation exploded into cinemas, ATYPs Artistic Director Fraser Corfield reimagines everyones favourite dystopian vision of misspent youth for a 2022 audience.
