“I wanted to change the world. But I have found that the only thing one can be sure of changing is oneself.”
Huxley’s ingenious fantasy of the future, written in 1931, is given extraordinary life in this new adaptation by award-winning playwright Dawn King.
Join us on an emotional journey into a future which sheds a blazing light on the present. Witness the horrors of a genetically engineered class system, A World State where people are always happy; where they get what they want, and they never want what they can’t have.
Discover the consequence of living in a world where love and empathy have given way to lust and pleasure. A world without religion or war. A world where Community, Identity, Stability is the world state motto.. what happens when that stability is threatened?
Performed by members of The Television Workshop Over-16 group, some of the most exciting emerging acting talent in the country.
