Real Horrorshow

What kind of person would watch a live production of A Clockwork Orange?

It isn't safe like watching a movie. There is no pause button, no off switch, no blanket to pull up over your eyes. You can't fast-forward through the horrorshow. You have to enter the horrorshow. Once you're in, you're in.

What kind of person would want to immerse themselves in A Clockwork Orange?

There's no curtain, there's no stage. No boundaries. 90 minutes trapped in the world of Alex DeLarge and his Droogs, breathing the same air, seeing their crimes as vividly as they do. You don't get to hide.

A Clockwork Orange isn't for everyone. We're okay with that. Some people want to push their own boundaries and some don't. You'll experience all the horrors of the modern world, explore the machine we live in that tries to take away our humanity. You'll stare things in the face other people choose to ignore.

What kind of person would enjoy A Clockwork Orange?

This production is for people who want to look past the boundaries of clean, quiet Midwestern living for an evening and stare into the strange, dark, unapologetic corners of reality. This is for people who want to enter the nightmare, live the worst-case scenario and see who they really are.

What kind of person are you?
