DoMaur Productions presents Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Fahrenheit 451 takes us to a world where books are burned, ideas are criminal, and firemen start fires.

This powerful drama tells the story of the protagonist Guy Montag.

In Montag’s world, firemen start fires rather than putting them out.  In a society not too far distant from our own, the people want to be told how to feel, what to do, what truths to believe.  They do not spend time enjoying nature, being by themselves, thinking independently, or involving themselves in meaningful conversations. 

Instead, they live in the moment, get all their information from their screens, drive very fast, watch excessive amounts of television on wall-size sets, and listen to the voices of the government on “Seashell Radio” sets attached to their ears.
