‘Beethoven. He gave heaven and you turn it into hell.’
Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange, published in 1962, tells the story of Alex, a juvenile delinquent who is brainwashed by the government. The novel foresaw a world where bored and disaffected youths addicted to ‘ultra-violence’ and ‘the old in-out’ would terrorise the streets, and where freedom of speech and free will would cease to be valued by those in charge.
Fifty years on, Burgess’s prediction seems worryingly accurate, and in light of the recent UK riots, the story of Alex and his ‘droogs’ gains a new relevance.
WUDS presents a modern retelling of this cult classic.
