“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. Anticipated to be an exciting, energetic and creative adaptation, the show will explore how idealistic political views can easily be exploited and hijacked by propaganda. Can anyone ever truly be equal?
On his return from school, a GCSE student reads George Orwell’s classic novel and as the story ignites around him, he becomes absorbed by the action of the animal rebellion. However, he soon finds his control of the classic tale and familiar characters spiralling dangerously beyond him, as the ideals of the uprising are corrupted and forgotten.
This visually engaging and stimulating adaptation, underscored by live original music, will incorporate physical theatre and puppetry to transform this familiar tale into a theatrical and exciting drama.
