Fahrenheit 451

The Prodigy’s ‘Firestarter’ opens this cautionary tale set in a future envisaged by Ray Bradbury, where books are burned for fear of independent thought. The track sets the tone for a production in which performances make up for in gusto what they can lack in finesse, and while some well-executed physical theatre adds an imaginative twist it doesn’t quite salvage the piece from mediocrity.
