Clockwork Orange, adapted for the stage by Anthony Burgess and directed by Jeremy Seghers is being staged at Drip's Underground Vampire Bar, 8747 International Dr Suite 102 (Behind Denny'S and Senor Frogs), Orlando, Florida. The play, based on Burgess’ acclaimed 1962 novel of the same title, tells the story of young Alex, played by Anthony Pyatt Jr., and his droogs as they wreak havoc in the streets of London. When Alex is caught and subjected to an experimental treatment to “cure” his violent tendencies, all hell breaks loose, and questions are raised about human nature and the freedom of choice.
The black light inside the Underground Vampire bar mad any white garment shine a bright blue. The performance space is intimate, so the action happens all around you. Just as in the Stanley Kubrick movie, the violence is intense. Fight Director Jason Skinner, had combatants using knives, chains and wrenches inches from the audience. During the fight rehearsal, one actor almost walked in the midst of the fight and a heavy chain missed him by inches.
During the experiment, the entire cast knotted them selves into a pyramidal mass to form the torture chair and restraints as Alex watched violent content with his eyelids forced open. Alex was an anomaly, a cultured thug with a taste for classic a music. He also likes a bit of the old in and out which means rape. Being a smart bloke, he figure he could out whit his captors, but he volunteered for something that even he couldn't handle.
Due to mature content of the show, all ticket holders must be over the age of 18.
