A new adaptation with words by Ed DuRanté and music by Fred Carl, Directed by Dawn Reid

Anthony Burgess’ cult novel A Clockwork Orange is re-imagined for the Theatre Royal Stratford East on the eve of its 50th anniversary. This iconic story influenced and inspired rock stars and artists from The Rolling Stones and David Bowie to Andy Warhol and, of course, Stanley Kubrick, who made the famous film version. Intelligent, irreverent Alex’s ultra-violent lifestyle catches up with him.

He is imprisoned and entered into a punishing government experiment aimed at ending all crime. Finding himself in an unexpected and life-altering personal horror show leads him to a choice: redemption or downfall? In this new adaptation, New York writers Ed DuRanté (words) and Fred Carl (music) return to the original source of Anthony Burgess’ book and importantly, his last chapter of redemption and hope. Married with a rich contemporary score of Jazz, Grooves and Beats, this promises to bring fresh resonance to a modern classic.
