Animal Farm

Background

In response to the Prime Minister’s statement on Monday evening, advising the UK public to avoid theatres, we regret to inform you that shows and gatherings in Coade Hall are temporarily suspended with immediate effect. 

The safety and security of Bryanston staff, students and our audience is of paramount importance and we take this responsibility very seriously. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have therefore at this time suspended booking for all our forthcoming events.

 

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

The Junior Drama Society production of Animal Farm is an adaptation by Peter Hall of George Orwell’s classic novel.

When the downtrodden beasts of Manor Farm oust the drunken farmer, all are awash in collectivist zeal. All too soon after, the pigs, who consider themselves intellectually superior, succumb to the temptations of privilege and power.

Performing in a time of political discord, this fast-moving, physically challenging ensemble piece is a fantastic dramatization of George Orwell’s classic satire Animal Farm. Expect puppetry, visually engaging physical theatre and music to help tell this polemic tale.
