Welcome to the year A.F. (After Ford) 632, the ultimate world of mass distraction. Perpetual youth, fFree sex, the Soma holiday, media-state-entertainment conditioning and genetic engineering create a world of perfect contentment; unless you happen to be different. This immersive mixed-media theatre experience will take you on an unforgettable trip into Huxley’s strange but familiar future.

Please prepare a 1 to 2-minute monologue – dramatic, comic or poetic.  Optional: In addition, you may present a brief statement about your experience and thoughts on the novel Brave New World.

Rehearsals will be Monday – Friday 6:30 – 10:30 PM and Saturday’s Noon – 5 PM, beginning August 28.

The cast includes all the main characters from the book: Director of the London Hatching and Conditioning Center, Henry Foster, Lenina Crowne, Fanny Crowne, Bernard Marx, Helmholtz Watson, John Savage, Linda, and World Controler- Mustapha Mond, plus an ensemble of actors and dancers to play a host of other characters and to create the immersive experience of the world for the audience through realistic physical actions and psychotropic movement sequences.
