Everyman Theatre, Hope Street, Liverpool, 16 June – 14 July
Between good and evil, is there a choice?
Alex loves milk.
Alex loves Beethoven.
But Alex loves violence too.
Something must be done about Alex, everyone agrees. Only… is punishment the answer? Or could there be another way?
In his notorious novel of teen culture gone bad, Anthony Burgess unleashed amoral Alex on the world. And in this, his own stage adaptation, the story comes dangerously to life, slicing open society with a steely poetic edge and taking a good hard look deep inside.
Shot through with music and studded with Burgess’ own songs, this is a thrilling, scalpel-sharp tale about transgression, free will and the power of old Ludwig Van.
£32 – £10
