By George Orwell
Stage Adaptation by Peter Hall
Music by Richard Peaslee  |  Lyrics by Adrian Mitchell
Directed by Stan Brown

Sir Peter Hall’s much-acclaimed musical adaptation brings George Orwell’s dystopian allegory of totalitarian society brilliantly to the stage.  As in the classic novel, the animals of Manor Farm band together to overthrow their two-legged masters, and create a world where “all animals are equal.”  Their utopia is short-lived, however, as a group of pigs conspire to prove that “some are more equal than others.”
