It's a great time for stage versions of film and TV shows, or at least it is in Brisbane. A Back to the Future parody is coming, and so is an X-Files musical. But first? A bit of the old ultraviolence thanks to Alex DeLarge and the droogs.

Yes, A Clockwork Orange was a novel by Anthony Burgess and an iconic film by Stanley Kubrick, and now it's a play at Brisbane Arts Theatre. Running on selected dates between January 6 to February 17, it's the story of disaffected youth and the state's response to anti-social behaviour, complete with a Beethoven soundtrack performed live.

That's all well, good and exciting, but we heartily recommend heading along January 12, 19, 25 and 28, or February 2, 9, 15 and 17 if your diary permits it. Why? That's when A Clockwork Orange won't just bring the story to life in front of your eyes, but it'll also boast a female cast taking on the principal roles.
