Anthony Burgess’ cult novel A Clockwork Orange receives an adaptation as a stage musical on the eve of its 50th anniversary.

A Clockwork Orange is set in the near future. Intelligent, irreverent Alex’s ultra-violent lifestyle catches up with him. He is imprisoned and entered into a government experiment aimed at ending all crime. He finds himself in an unexpected and life-altering personal horror show, which leads him to a choice: redemption or downfall?

A Clockwork Orange is the iconic story that has influenced and inspired rock stars and artists from The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Gnarls Barkley to Andy Warhol and, of course, Stanley Kubrick, the lauded director who made the notorious film.

Please note, A Clockwork Orange contains strong language and scenes of an adult nature. It is suitable for theatregoers aged 15 and older.
