Animal Farm

  • Show Information

‘All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.’

Animal Farm – the history of a revolution that went wrong – is George Orwell’s brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power. A GCSE student reads the classic novel and immediately becomes absorbed by the action of the animal rebellion. As the story ignites around him, he finds the ideals of the uprising are being corrupted and forgotten.

This visually engaging adaptation, underscored by live original music and incorporating physical theatre and puppetry, will explore how idealistic political views can easily be exploited and hijacked by propaganda. Can anyone ever truly be equal?
