Anthony Burgess' classic dystopian work played in a small dark barn with uncomfortable seats, wood and spray paint on the walls, and rubbish all over the floor. This production featured brutal fight scenes, a lot of blood, graphic double-wall projections, lights held up with gaffer tape and Beethoven put to distorted techno.
A Clockwork Orange was the birth of Datura. Tom decided he wanted to put on A Clockwork Orange. Sean was good at theatre. Kate fancied Sean and auditioned for the show. She wasn't right for the show, but Tom and Sean asked her to be producer. She drank a lot of wine and watched Tom teach cast members how to fight.
The show sold out and received outstanding reviews from York publications.
