Animal Farm, one of the most controversial and studied political commentaries arrives in a brand new production combining physical theatre and storytelling. George Orwell’s simple yet intensely powerful fairy tale illustrates how greed and absolute power corrupts absolutely and, with devastating consequences, can change the course of history.

Revolution has taken place at Manor Farm. The pigs have assumed control and under the principles of ‘Animalism’ a better life free from human service is promised to all. Guided by a simple set of rules and an unrelenting respect for authority, it is not long before the rules that promised freedom become the chains that bind the animals once again.

Directed by Michael Futcher and brought to life by shake & stir theatre co and a cast of Queensland’s most dynamic actors, Animal Farm promises to be one of the most shocking, exciting, relevant and wickedly funny theatre events in 2013.
