ED2012 Theatre Review: A Clockwork Orange (Action To The Word)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

‘A Clockwork Orange’ is one of my favourite books, so for me it was incredible to see it come to life in this astounding performance. Through superb direction, production, choreography, scripting and casting this play captures the real essence of the book. The actors are perfect for their roles, with a notable mention to Martin McCreadie who is as beautiful and captivating as he is terrifying, playing the perfect Alex. The script remained true to the book while being understandable and the choreography had me on the edge of my seat. This portrayal highlights the underlying themes of the novel amazingly and is electric, thought-provoking and thrilling. An amazing performance that does the classic novel proud.

Pleasance Courtyard, 1-26 Aug, 3.40pm.
