If you’re familiar with Stanley Kubrick 1971 film “A Clockwork Orange,” then don’t worry: Jobsite Theater’s production is based more on Anthony Burgess’ 1962 dystopian novel about free will and moral action (Burgess actually didn’t like the movie).

And if you think you’re not ready to see a live production built around such a heavy topic, then know that another part of the book is about a person’s capacity for change.

Now, if you’re looking to see a young cast interject some dark comedy into a script that tackles some of the toughest themes from the last six decades of human existence, well, then, you’re in the right place. Preview performances of "A Clockwork Orange: A Play with Music" start Wednesday, March 4 at Tampa's Jobsite Theater, located at the David A. Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa, Florida. Tickets start at $29.50 and are available now.
