INSPIRING THEATRE AS ANIMAL FARM COMES TO NEWCASTLE THEATRE ROYAL

A stunning re-imagining of the famous George Orwell fable – Animal Farm – is set to enthral audiences at Newcastle Theatre Royal during a one-week run (Tue 22 – Sat 26 Feb 2022).

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.

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.

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; features puppetry by Toby Olié (whose credits include War Horse, Running Wild and Goodnight Mister Tom) and 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.

Animal Farm plays at Newcastle Theatre Royal from Tue 22 – Sat 26 Feb 2022. Tickets are priced from £10.00 and can be purchased at www.theatreroyal.co.uk or from the Theatre Royal Box Office on 0191 232 7010.
