17 years since its world premiere, Guy Masterson’s magnificent solo performance of Orwell’s classic satire comes to Australia – for two shows only.
Using nothing but a bale of hay, some amazing sound effects and brilliant physical and vocal dexterity, Masterson ignites this famous yarn bringing a modern sinister relevance to Orwell’s masterwork, leaving an indelible imprint in the consciousness. Hilariously comic and terribly poignant in turn, Masterson’s breathtaking physical storytelling creates the entire farmyard around you in two hours of utterly compelling theatre. Now officially the most highly performed solo show in the world, this is a must see performance for all ages. If you’ve never seen or read Animal Farm, this is the show for you.
“Masterson ignites this famous tale, bringing both humour and a sinister aspect to the rhetoric of the upwardly mobile pigs.” – The Herald
“A brilliant adaptation which delights with its physical grace and artistry. It’s complex and entirely theatrical; a combination of bravura acting and poetic storytelling which milks new nuance and meaning!” – The Scotsman
