Animal Farm

Octagon Theatre Bolton, Derby Theatre & Hull Truck Theatre present

Animal Farm

Based on the novel by George Orwell


A powerful re-telling of George Orwell’s chilling and timeless classic.

When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master and take over, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality for all. However, over time a cunning and brutal elite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, gradually take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they once thought and find themselves ensnared as one tyranny is replaced with another.

Intensely physical, visceral adaptation of Orwell’s timeless classic.

The Stage

Orwell’s enduring and devastating satire about the corruption of power is brought vividly to life on stage in this compelling critically acclaimed production.

Adapted for the stage by Ian Wooldridge
Directed by Iqbal Khan
