Adapted by Netta Yashchin from the novel by George Orwell
No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?
George Orwell’s classic tale of a corrupted revolution is brought to life with startling imagination by director Netta Yashchin. The animals of Manor Farm have a vision for a better world. But there is a fragrance to power that can overwhelm the senses. It takes more than ideals to elevate ourselves from the muck heap.
This new adaptation brings an ecstatic, tribal energy to one of the greatest stories of the 20th Century. An ensemble of actors aged between 15 and 25 will turn Studio 1 into a utopian world before revelling in its demise. Using physical theatre, ensemble improvisation and excerpts straight from the novel, this production is a joyous theatrical revolution.
