Animal Farm

  • Presented by The National Youth Theatre

UNFORTUNATELY THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL. THANK YOU.

All animals are equal - but some are more equal than others.

Following its critically acclaimed tour in Spring 2021, National Youth Theatre’s Animal Farm, starring Britain’s most exciting diverse young talent is back by popular demand.

Award-winning political playwright Tatty Hennessy (A Hundred Words for Snow, F*Off) adapts George Orwell’s classic as an allegory for our own times exploring themes of revolution, greed and power with humour, invention and sharp wit. Directed with playful theatricality and menace by Ed Stambollouian (Pinter at the Pinter, West End) National Youth Theatre’s thrilling, dynamic and accessible take on Orwell’s class was the first major theatrical adaptation to hit Britain’s stages following the pandemic.

When the downtrodden animals of a farm overthrow their master to run the show themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of independence and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless élite among them start to take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they thought, and find themselves hopelessly ensnared as one form of tyranny is replaced with another and independence isn’t what they were promised it would be.

The National Youth Theatre’s renowned alumni rank amongst Britain’s greatest actors and include Daniel Craig, Helen Mirren, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matt Smith, Regé-Jean and Rosamund Pike. Backstage NYT graduates have gone on to work in key roles at the world's biggest theatres and events including Olympic Ceremonies, award-wining large-scale theatre productions and global tours of the world's biggest music artists.
