George Orwell’s classic gets adapted by playwright and social commentator Van Badham. Animal Farm is showing for most of September 2020 under the umbrella of Western Australia’s Black Swan State Theatre Company.

Orwell’s work often concerns itself with the threat posed by authoritarian regimes, and Animal Farm tells the story of a thinly veiled imitation of the Russian Revolution set in a farmyard. Badham’s twist is enacted by a cast of comedians and improvisers who serve as her allegories for Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky, just as Orwell’s pigs did.
