Synopsis

Literature to Life brings Ray Bradbury’s terrifyingly recognizable vision of the future to the stage for audiences of all ages. Guy Montag, is a fireman in a not-so distant future. Except instead of putting out fires, he starts them in order to burn books. Bradbury’s vision of a world, awash in information, but lacking critical thought offers audiences of all ages a sobering look at our world, while offering hope for a better future.

This classic American novel presents a frightening vision of the future: where fireman don’t put out fires – they start them in order to burn books. One night while returning from work, 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.
