    ‘Hear the hoofbeats of tomorrow,
    See the golden futures rise.’

    Peter Hall’s adaptation of ‘Animal Farm’ was first performed 20 years ago. Frenetic dialogue interpolated with narrative prose, set against Adrian Mitchell’s militant yet haunting music fires this play with different modes of expression; reflective, active and descriptive. This particular production adds further dimensions by combining cinema with theatre, giving it a largely Brechtian appeal that echoes the nature of the novel as an allegory for twentieth century European history.

    Don't miss George Orwell's cult tale brought to the stage in this unique and thrilling multimedia adaptation.

    Animal Farm plays on November 15th, 17th & 19th, in repertoire with [SHOW:366] on November 16th, 18th & 20th.
