“All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.”
Something is going on at Manor Farm. The animals have overthrown Farmer Jones and with the pigs as leaders have created a new state for themselves called Animal Farm.
A set of commandments is written as a guide for animal life, but cunning propaganda hides the pigs’ true agenda and the ideals of the revolution gradually degenerate. George Orwell’s Animal Farm, originally published in 1945, is one of the 20th century’s great novels. In the hands of award-winning director Ivan Heng and W!ld Rice, this deceptively simple tale of barnyard betrayal is exciting, powerful and urgent theatre.
Vital, sexy and wickedly funny, W!ld Rice has produced a sensational show that will have you squealing for more.
