A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange
The Cluny 2, 10th-12th November 2010

Alex and his vicious gang of Droogs revel in ultra-violence and “the old in-out”. Alex also revels in the music of Beethoven. The gang communicate in a language which is as complicated as their actions. When a drug-fuelled night of fun ends in murder, Alex is finally busted and banged up. He is given a choice – be brainwashed into good citizenship and set free, or face a lifetime inside.

A Clockwork Orange is a frightening fable about good and evil, and the meaning of human freedom. When the state undertakes to reform Alex to “redeem” him, the play asks “at what cost?”
