Animal Farm

Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA presents Animal Farm.

Adapted by Van Badham from the novel by George Orwell.

All animals are equal—but some animals are more equal than others.

"Hysterical." - ABC’S Q&A

Manor Farm is in a state of rebellion as a gang of pigs unite to overthrow their cruel human oppressor. Written in the 1940s by George Orwell as a response to the rise of authoritarian governments, Animal Farm is a timeless examination of extremist rule. This new adaptation continues to caution with the universal message that power can corrupt—and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Adapted by political powerhouse Van Badham (Banging Denmark, Q&A, The Drum and writer at The Guardian), this high-octane three-hander features a cast of stellar comedians, improvisers and storytellers. They bring to life a farmyard of characters including the hardworking Boxer and power hungry Napoleon. This is a biting political satire that will make you grunt.

Director:
Emily McLean
