Converting Animal farm, one of the greatest works of twentieth century literature for the stage was never going to be easy. The book is written in such a way as to make it very difficult to stage for an audience, what with the heavy use of narration, and the animal characters. This play, however, makes an excellent attempt of it, and pulls of what is a fairly accurate portrayal of George Orwell's story.
The play leaves an audience with the same sense of waking up after having been beaten about the head with something heavy, and seeing the world from a new perspective that the book does, and this in itself is an accomplishment. It's still a difficult play to stage, but with some imagination, and a good cast, this script will leave your audience baying for revolution!
