Animal Farm

Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA

Animal
My fellow patriots,

We’re going to MAKE ANIMAL FARM GREAT!

The reign of terror is over. You have put your faith in animalism and it has delivered. The best economy we’ve ever had. Ask a lot of pigs and they’ll tell you nobody knows the economy better than me. Best thing… you’re really going to love this… you can’t wait to hear it I know… they always say I have the best ideas… we’re building a windmill! Trust me. You’re going to love it. Made by animals, for animals, bringing power to animals!

Political powerhouse Van Badham (Banging Denmark, The Guardian) delivers an internet-fast brilliantly sharp adaptation of George Orwell’s response to the authoritarian government in Animal Farm. This high-octane satire boils with the potency and emergency of a viral tweet. Trust us. You’re going to love it.

EVERYONE LEGIT HAS FOUR LEGS OR WINGS and OH MY GOD… it’s a – it’s a – it’s a – it’s a f@%king ANIMAL REBELLION” Squealer
