Animal Farm
Animal Farm
2004 New York Drama Desk Awards Nomination for Outstanding Costume Design—Jenny Mannis, Costume Designer for Synapse's 2004 production of Animal Farm

"Ian Wooldridge's adaptation makes the text as engagingly relevant as ever." —Evening Standard
Adapted by Ian Wooldridge from the book by George Orwell.

Cast: 6 to 12 actors. Cast expandable to as many as desired. George Orwell's satire on the perils of Stalinism has proved magnificently long-lived as a parable about totalitarianism anywhere and has given the world at least one immortal phrase: "Some are more equal than others." The animals on a farm drive out their master and take over and run the farm for themselves. The experiment is successful, except that someone has to take the deposed farmer's place. Leadership devolves upon the pigs, which are cleverer than the rest of the animals. Unfortunately, their character is not equal to their intelligence. This dramatization remains faithful to the book's plot and intent and retains both its affection for the animals and the incisiveness of its message. Flexible set. Suitable for touring. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
