By George Orwell
created & adapted by Shake & Stir Theatre Co.
The best play of 2011 returns in 2013 after a four-month National tour.
Four legs good, two legs bad.
Animal Farm, one of the most controversial and studied political commentaries returns to Brisbane in a multi-award winning, physical theatre production. Playing for a strictly limited season, George Orwell's simple yet intensely powerful fairy tale illustrates with stunning clarity and grotesque beauty how greed and power corrupts 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 until the rules that promised freedom become the chains that bind the animals once again.
Directed by Michael Futcher and realised by shake & stir and a cast of Queensland's most dynamic actors, Animal Farm promises to be one of the most shocking, relevant and wickedly funny theatre events of 2013. Pig in now to avoid disappointment.
Featuring: Ross Balbuziente, Tim Dashwood, Nelle Lee, Bryan Probets and Nick Skubij
