Glasshouse Port Macquarie presents
BY GEORGE ORWELL | CREATED BY SHAKE & STIR THEATRE CO
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, fueled 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.
Bring your students and introduce them to one of the most controversial and studied political commentaries around live on the Glasshouse stage.
