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.
A remarkable piece of theatre - do whatever you can to get a ticket.

shake & stir nailed it. Physical Theatre at its best.
POST SHOW Q&A
*commencing directly after the 11am performance on Tuesday 8 September
Ever wondered what inspired the actor to deliver the performance? Or what life on tour is really like?
There will be a post-show Q&A session after this performance, so stay in your seats after the show for an engaging conversation and to ask those burning questions!
Note: Some Q&A sessions commence 5-10 minutes after a performance ends. This is to give the cast time for a quick change out of their costumes before they return to the stage.
