Robert Koall’s efficient stage adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s dystopian 1932 novel. A totalitarian regime has created an ideal society where humans are developed in test tubes and divided into classes organized by genes, intelligence and physics. Government-sanctioned drugs and recreational sex have ensured satisfied citizens and uncritical consumers. Except for one man … When he brings back one of the few remaining “wild people” from a remote reservation, he begins a dramatic cultural clash which forces him to think about if freedom, dignity and individualism are worth fighting and suffering for at all.
