Animal Farm
Shake & Stir Theatre Co presents
Animal Farm

6 May 2021 to 8 May 2021

Make Animal Farm Great Again, Again…

George Orwell’s powerfully potent and profoundly popular allegory returns in a multi-award winning theatre production – served fast, furious and full of grunt.

Revolution has taken place at Manor Farm. The animals have overthrown their human masters and assumed control of the farm. Led by the charismatic porker Napoleon and fueled by enthusiastic camaraderie, a prosperous future free from the self-serving greed of humans is theirs for the taking. However, it is not long until the principles that promised equality become the shackles that bind the animals once again.

All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others. 

Created by critically-acclaimed shake & stir theatre co, Animal Farm will be one of the most blisteringly relevant, fiercely physical and wickedly funny theatre events of 2021.

After being put out to pasture for much of 2020, live theatre is back – and more essential than ever.
