Four legs good, two legs bad.
Animal Farm, one of the most enduring political commentaries of our time, has been adapted into a multi-award winning, critically-acclaimed theatre production. George Orwell’s intensely powerful fairy tale allegorises and satirises communist governments while illustrating with stunning simplicity how greed and power corrupts with devastating consequences to all who yield.
Revolution has taken place at Manor Farm. The pigs have assumed control and all the animals, fuelled by enthusiastic camaraderie and guided by a set of self-imposed rules, are promised a better life free from the self-serving greed of humans. However, it is not long until the rules that promised equality and freedom become the shackles that bind the animals once again.
George Orwell's Animal Farm is widely regarded as quality literature and is on the BOSTES suggested reading list. This adaptation is the perfect way to introduce your students to this classic novella.
