ABOUT THE PLAY

Everything burns.

In this dystopian classic, Guy Montag has worked for ten years as a Fireman, burning books for the state. However, when he meets Clarisse, a young woman filled with strange ideas, he finds himself drawn out of his numb complacency into a world of thoughts and feelings that pits him against his superior, the shrewd Captain Beatty, in a battle for both of their souls.
