Synopsis

Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which paper ignites. With simple sets and uncomplicated staging, this powerful drama is about the inner struggle of Guy Montag, a fireman. Montag has worked as a civil servant for ten years burning books, but lately he has become increasingly unsure about what he is doing and about his vegetable-like existence. It is not until he meets 16-year-old Clarisse, who is filled with strange ideas, that he is led into a dangerous and highly combustible situation. Now he must choose between continuing his nonexistent existence and risking everything for the right to think.

"Honors the book and the medium. Great for school groups."

"This is one of the great classical pieces of literature that is worth being on the stage till the end of theatrical time."
Review by Hope deFrenes, Montgomery Theater, Souderton, Pa.
"Our students, teachers and patrons were on the edge of their seats. This powerful play delivers a message that every community needs to hear: it is dangerous when a society stops thinking and growing and, most importantly, reading. It was a challenge, but worth it!"
Review by Hillary Bower, Tri-School Theatre, Anaheim, Calif.
"It was an excellent show. English classes read Fahrenheit 451 at our school. We did a discussion group on the Internet and I contacted Ray Bradbury to tell him about our show and all the things we did. The students were most excited to hear from him."
Review by Bob Howell, Illinois Valley Central High School, Chillicothe, Ill.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"Our production included some wonderful projections, imaginative set, costumes and futuristic sound design."
Tip by Jeff Ortmann, Beverly Theatre Guild, Oak Lawn, Ill.
"A must is a fire pole—we had one and it was most impressive. I used a JPEG from the Internet and, with projectors, had flames up both sides of the stage—very startling."
Tip by Bob Howell, Illinois Valley Central High School, Chillicothe, Ill.
