Taking a nod from the critically acclaimed 2017 off-Broadway production, this updated adaptation by Anthony Burgess of his own novel lures audiences into a glass-edged, testosterone-filled underworld of a dystopian future, featuring an all-male cast. The explosive story of little Alex and his band of Droogs was a ground-breaking classic teeming with sexuality and “a bit of the old ultra-violence”; the story feels as hauntingly relevant today as when the book was published in 1962, and when Stanley Kubrick’s Oscar-nominated film caused a stir in 1971. A Clockwork Orange remains an unapologetic celebration of the human condition and individual freedoms, and a timely examination of toxic masculinity and the values of society.
