A talented team of 7-18 year olds work on-stage and backstage to present one of the greatest stories of the 20th century. Manor Farm has fallen on hard times under the ownership of spiteful drunken farmer, Mr Jones. Tired of the hard life under human rule, the starving animals drive their wicked master off the land.
The sun rises on the reborn ‘Animal Farm’, a perfect home for those who walk on trotters, hooves or webbed feet. “All animals are equal” – everyone gets an equal share of food for an equal share of work. Life is good, and pleasures are plenty.
But it isn’t long before the pigs take charge and things start to turn sour. While all animals are equal, some are more equal than others. Will the farm revolt again? George Orwell’s Animal Farm has gripped readers since it was first published in 1945, but is rarely seen on stage. This unflinching exploration of personal freedom bursts into life in a new production by the LCPA Youth Theatre, following their production of Grimms Tales (Summer 2018).
