A Clockwork Orange

26 - 27 October 2011 
Performance Time: 19:30 
Venue: Lakeside Theatre 

“What's it going to be then, eh?” 
Volcano takes on Burgess's inventive, disturbing little masterpiece fifty years after it was written. A nasty little shocker, or a profound exploration of state power and free will? 

Beautifully designed, with extraordinary performances, this production stays true to Burgess's original both in its cut-throat inventiveness and in its insistence on the question of whether it is better to be forced to be good or to be free to do evil. 

Tickets: UoE Students £5, UoE Staff & Concessions £7, Full £10
