Written by George Orwell, adapted by Peter Hall, with lyrics by Adrian Mitchell and music by Richard Peaslee
A Musical Revolution.
The subjugated animals of an oppressive farm decide, in the cover of darkness, to rise up and overthrow their brutal Master, Farmer Jones. From this revolution, a more equal society emerges with the maxim “Four Legs Good, Two Legs Bad”. But as the animals enjoy their new freedom, a struggle for power begins and a new force takes hold in the form of the ambitious, violent pigs.
This startlingly contemporary story explores revolution, the power of community and the dangers of totalitarianism.
This brutal, bloody, musical production presented by Dublin Youth Theatre casts a modern eye on this ever-pertinent allegory and asks, can we walk with open eyes into our own collective destruction?
This amateur production of “Animal Farm (Hall)” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
