‘A Clockwork Orange’ Hits Aussie Shores.

Action to the Word‘s critically acclaimed, all-male theatrical production of Anthony Burgess’s ground-breaking novel, A Clockwork Orange will tour Australia in 2013.

Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange will come to Australia direct from the UK, where it’s been garnering rave reviews in the 50th anniversary year of the book’s original release. This production is a testosterone fuelled, electrifying theatrical adaptation of the best-selling novel, which was adapted into Stanley Kubrick’s cult film in 1971. Both the original literary source and film adaptation of A Clockwork Orange have become seminal icons in popular culture and remain as relevant today as when they first entered the cultural psyche.

An unapologetic, visceral exploration of humanity in a “fictional” world full of violence, corruption and redemption, A Clockwork Orange mirrors society past-and-present and the human condition through the glorious glass-edged nastiness of Manchester’s underworld.
