The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
Tell Tale Theatre’s latest production is a theatrical adaptation of George Orwell’s classic Animal Farm; an allegorical and dystopian novel, published in England in 1945. In an exciting new collaboration with award-winning writer Laurence Wilson Tell Tale Theatre offer up a dynamic theatrical interpretation of this world famous book. With live music, drama and film this production promises to be challenging, powerful and deeply relevant.
It would be hard to over-estimate the lasting impact of Orwell’s fantastic setting of a ‘proletarian revolution’ in an English farm where the animals – led by the pigs – organize their collective strength to overthrow the humans, but end up with another dictatorship.
Written at the end of a War against fascist Germany – fought in partnership with the socialist system of Stalin’s Soviet Union – the message in Orwell’s story carried heavy warnings.
