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.
This Literature to Life award winner was adapted for the stage and helped to launch the company’s national literacy effort, Project 451. The show features sixty minutes of performance spanning the full breadth of this beloved American science fiction novel. In performance the actor tells the story from the perspective of the protagonist, Montag, and seamlessly transitions between the five other primary characters.
