Animal Farm

Date: 26 Mar 2019

Actor Dale March plays more than 20 characters – animal and human – in Geordie Brookman’s adaptation of George Orwell’s classic novella.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest stories in English literature, Animal Farm was written in the 1940’s as a response to the rise of authoritarian governments around the world.

“As the historian Timothy Snyder wrote, ‘post-truth is pre-fascism,’ and terrifyingly we find ourselves very much in a post-truth world,” Brookman says. “Orwell was such a precise analyst of the darker trends of human nature that it is no surprise that his work in general and this beautiful parable specifically retain such powerful relevance today.”

Animal Farm also plays Hothouse Theatre, Wodonga, May 7-11
