The animals of Manor Farm drive out the farmer to rule the farm themselves. A revolution. And then what - freedom? All animals to be free. All animals to be equal. But some are more equal than others.
Old Major, the prize boars, calls the animals of Manor Farm together. He has a strange dream of a better, brighter future. How will the animals fare as his vision unfolds?
George Orwell's world-famous fable tells the story of a revolution and its aftermath. The timeless story has been re-imagined by an award-winning creative team in a bold, imaginative and contemporary new production which is accessible to all.
Animal Farm is directed by Robert Icke, whose version of 1984 (co-adapted and directed with Duncan Macmillian) was a smash-hit in the West End and on Broadway. This brand new production features puppetry by Toby Oliè (whose credits include War Horse, Running Wild and Goodnight Mister Tom) and designed by four-time Olivier award-winner Bunny Christie.
The Children's Theatre Partnership creates bold and imaginative theatre for young people, engaging new audiences and aiming to inspire a life-long love of theatre. Birmingham Repertory Theatre has an unparalleled pioneering history and has been at the forefront of British theatre for over 100 years. Together, they are thrilled to present this striking new version of Animal Farm.
