Director Alexandra Spencer-Jones’ adaptation of Anthony Burgess’ landmark 1962 novel comes from London to New World Stages with its original star Jonno Davies as Alex. More…
'A Clockwork Orange' lures audiences into a glass-edged, testosterone-filled underworld of a dystopian future. The explosive story of little Alex and his rebellious gang of Droogs is a groundbreaking classic of orgiastic ultra-violence and sexuality. As hauntingly relevant today as when Burgess’ book was first published, 'A Clockwork Orange' is an unapologetic celebration of the human condition.

Don't see it if You don't like violence.
See it if You Have very low expectations. This production is definitely much worse than the movie/book.

Don't see it if you would be put off by the stylized violence and sex that are at the core of this drama.
See it if Quite provocative with plenty of skin exposure. Acting from the main lead, Jonno, is just pure power - very very intense and dynamic

See it if You are prepared for a full -on assault of your senses.
Don't see it if You are expecting the story to be told with any restraint. This is raw, relentless, and almost campy
See it if you were able to stomach 1984... this was a slightly less intense feeling...
Don't see it if you don't like gritty, in your face kind of theatre...
See it if You enjoy dark and dystopic stories, great direction, movement is precise and dynamic. Jonno Davies is great as Alex.
