Animal Farm by George Orwell, adapted and directed by Robert Icke. Set and Costume Designer Bunny Christie, Puppet Designer and Director Toby Olié.

The animals of Manor Farm drive out the farmer and run the farm themselves. A revolution. And then what? Then freedom. Every animal will be free.

Old Major, the prize boar, calls the animals of Manor Farm together. He has had a strange dream of a better future.

George Orwell’s world-famous fable tells the story of a revolution and its aftermath. Re-imagined by an award-winning creative team, Animal Farm is a dynamic, daring, and contemporary take on a timeless story.

Animal Farm is directed by Robert Icke, whose version of 1984 (co-adapted and directed with Duncan Macmillan) was a smash-hit in the West End and on Broadway. This brand-new production features puppetry by Toby Olié (whose credits include War Horse, Running Wild and Goodnight, Mister Tom) and is designed by four-time Olivier award-winner Bunny Christie.

The Children’s Theatre Partnership creates bold and imaginative theatre for young people, engaging new audiences and aiming to inspire a life-long love of theatre.

Some strong language, not suitable for young children. General viewing, but some scenes may be unsuitable for young children, should not unsettle a child aged around eight or older.
