From the book by George Orwell

Animal Farm is sponsored by the City of Raleigh Arts Commission
See the play that Alan Hall from CVNC called, "...a clever and engaging evening of theatre...".
George Orwell’s cautionary tale of a revolution gone wrong springs to life in this stunning adaptation by Peter Hall. Starved, neglected, and abused, the animals of Manor Farm stage a revolution, establish a system of equality, and adopt the Seven Commandments of Animalism. The revolution is soon betrayed by power-hungry pigs who alter the commandments and eventually obliterate all but one: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” Age recommendation: 10 and up.
Director: Linda O’Day Young
Run time: 1 hour, 55 minutes including a 10 minute intermission.
If you join us for performances on Thursday, July 25 or Friday, July 26, please stay for a post-show discussion with the cast and crew about George Orwell's Animal Farm and its relevance to our lives today.
