Theatre Studies Presents Animal Farm

January 31-February 1 and February 6-8 at 8:00 p.m. Sternberger Auditorium
Posted: October 25, 2013

Animal Farm, adapted for the stage by Ian Woolridge and based on the novel by George Orwell, tells the story of starving farm animals who drive off their cruel master and begin running things themselves. Leadership falls to the pigs, who seem to be more clever than the other animals. Will the animals’ new society flourish, or will corruption and oppression reemerge? George Orwell’s 1945 satire on the aftermath of the Russian Revolution has enjoyed long-lived success as a parable about totalitarianism–and gave birth to the immortal phrase: “Some are more equal than others.”
