About Animal Farm

Stellar production of Orwell’s timeless classic returns to the Octagon ahead of UK tour.

When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master and take over, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality for all. However, over time a cunning and brutal elite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, gradually take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they once thought and find themselves ensnared as one tyranny is replaced with another.

Orwell's enduring and devastating satire about the corruption of power received rave reviews and sell-out shows in 2024 and it now returns to the Octagon ahead of a UK tour.
