Fahrenheit 451

FAHRENHEIT 451

DIRECTED BY THOMAS GREUNEWALD          WRITTEN BY RAY BRADBURY             April 1st - 17th, 2011

A modern multi media updating of Ray Bradbury's adaptation of his classic dystopian novel. Fahrenheit 451 tells the story of Guy Montag, who has worked as a civil servant burning books for ten years. When he meets Clarisse, a young woman with powerful, strange ideas, he becomes more and more unsure about the nature of his work.  What ensues is a dangerous and highly combustible situation in which Montag must choose between continuing his “nonexistent” existence and risking everything for the right to think.

Fahrenheit 451 was presented as part of the city of Pittsfield's Big Read 2011.
