From the opening scene, shake & stir’s version of this infamous story snatches your attention and keeps a firm grasp until the horrifying conclusion Barefoot Reviewer, Canberra

Shocking, relevant and wickedly funny. Pig in now to avoid disappointment.

We regret to inform our audiences that the ANIMAL FARM 2020 national tour has been postponed. We hope to have news of a future season production in due course.

Animal Farm, one of the most enduring political commentaries returns in a multi-award winning, critically-acclaimed theatre production. George Orwell’s intensely powerful fairy tale allegorizes and satirizes communist governments while illustrating with stunning simplicity how greed and power corrupts with devastating consequences to all who yield.

Revolution has taken place at Manor Farm. The pigs have assumed control and all the animals, fuelled by enthusiastic camaraderie and guided by a set of self-imposed rules, are promised a better life free from the self-serving greed of humans. However, it is not long until the rules that promised equality and freedom become the shackles that bind the animals once again.

Running time 90mins no interval
Suitable for ages 12+.

Haze, smoke, strobe effects, loud music.
