By George Orwell
Revolution is coming to Manor Farm.
Under the guidance of some rebellious pigs, a group of farm animals unite to drive out their cruel human oppressors and build utopia. But the swine are not as united as they appear and their division gives rise to a terrifying new system of power and repression.
Written in the 1940s as a response to the rise of authoritarian governments around the world, Animal Farm is a searing and timeless examination of extremist rule.
In his final production as Artistic Director, Geordie Brookman and the mercurial Renato Musolino join forces to create a scintillating take on one of the greatest stories of English literature. A sublime and unadorned piece of theatrical storytelling Animal Farm will see Musolino inhabit upwards of 20 characters, from the revolutionary pigs to the stoic draft horse and the tyrannical Mr Jones.
