By George Orwell
This much-acclaimed dramatization of George Orwell’s classic, allegorical novel was first seen at the National Theatre in1984.As a schoolboy reads Orwell’s enduring parable on the perils of totalitarianism, the farmyard comes to life around him, enacting the animals’ rebellion. The dialogue is complemented by Mitchell’s witty lyrics and Peaslee’s music, jaunty at first, but increasingly threatening and dissonant.
Wooldridge’s powerful and straightforward dramatisation remains faithful to Orwell’s original, retaining both its affection for the animals and the incisiveness of its message.
