“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”
The animals on a farm drive out their master and take over and run the farm for themselves. The experiment is successful, except that someone has to take the deposed farmer’s place. Leadership devolves upon the pigs, which are cleverer than the rest of the animals.
Unfortunately, their character is not equal to their intelligence. This dramatization remains faithful to the book’s plot and intent and retains both its affection for the animals and the incisiveness of its message.
This play is being performed by an ensemble of just four actors, which results in a fast-paced, tightly drawn interpretation of this timely story.
