Why Watch A Clockwork Orange

Ever since its release as a novel in 162, A Clockwork Orange has been hailed a cultural landmark. An unapologetic celebration of human life known for its ground-breaking orgiastic ultra-violence and sexuality, this celebrated work has been declared as one of the top ‘100 Greatest Novels of all Time’ by Time Magazine and the Guardian.

This milestone of literature was first adapted for the screen by Stanley Kubrick in a Hollywood movie of the same name. What followed after the movie’s release was quite a riot. Quoted by the New York Times as ‘a volume bursting with linguistic energy that continues to inspire generations of readers and writers’, the 1971 blockbuster grossed over ten times its budget and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture.

This latest iteration by Alexandra Spencer-Jones has left audiences in awe. A critically-acclaimed stage production with a prolific track record in England, ‘A Clockwork Orange’ is a definite must-see.

The Story

Set in a dystopian future, this explosive story follows the life and works of Alex DeLarge. The self-proclaimed leader of the rebellious Droogs gang running rampant in the streets, Alex is a violent, sexual and haunting man who sucks in happiness and drowns it with profane and abusive acts.

With their characteristic swagger, their muscular builds and high volumes of testosterone, ‘A Clockwork Orange’ is a dark and scary world where the conflict between humanity and individuality reaches a peak before boiling over in a hot-pot of drama, dystopia, and insanity.

Critics Reviews

" It’s a funny, moving and dark piece of theatre, supported by a story that works at every political turning point. Even throughout the insanity of 2016 and the first bananas installment of 2017, A Clockwork Orange refuses to let up, and is just as relevant at this very moment as it was in 1962."
Ej Stedman, The London Economic

"Restaging the show for performance in the round, director Alexandra Spencer-Jones preserves its striking physical aesthetic. Gang brawls are rendered in balletic choreography while the athletic, all-male cast crawl and cavort around the stage as lithe and predatory as feral cats...Stylish, stylised, and drenched in sweat, the show has a breathless, exhilarating energy.
" – Dave Fargnoli, The Stage, UK

Booked the tickets through Headout and it was super easy! I travel alot and use many different apps and wbesites to book my shows and tours but I have to say that Headout stole the show. Their website is so user friendly and easy to use and their chat service is quick and efficient. Will definitely use them again. Good job guy :)
