Very few people who saw Stanley Kubrick's 1971 A Clockwork Orange, starring Malcolm McDowell as the sociopathic Alex, can forget its calculated savagery - the rape, the brainwashing of Alex to Beethoven's 9th. But perhaps fewer know that Anthony Burgess, who wrote the screenplay with Kubrick based on his novel, also made it into a play.
Following the career of Alex, the play tackles the big questions of good and evil and of choice and consequence thereby.
A joint production by Tzavta, the Open and Beersheba theaters opens September 22 at Tzavta. The play was translated and is directed by Benny Yizrael.
