SHOCKING, relevant and wickedly funny, George Orwell's Animal Farm has arrived at Glen Street Theatre.

One of the most enduring political commentaries of our time has been adapted into a multi-award winning, critically-acclaimed theatre production.

The intensely powerful fairy tale allegorises and satirises communist governments while illustrating with stunning simplicity how greed and power corrupts with devastating consequences to all who yield.

Revolution has taken place at Manor Farm.

The pigs have assumed control and all the animals, fuelled by enthusiastic camaraderie and guided by a set of self-imposed rules, are promised a better life free from the self-serving greed of humans. However, it is not long until the rules that promised equality and freedom become the shackles that bind the animals once again.

This must-see performance hits the stage from April 28 to May 2.

Starring Darcy Brown (Red Stitch's Oil, Lunchbox Theatrical Productions Peter Pan Goes Wrong), Tim Dashwood (Fantastic Mr Fox, Wuthering Heights), Nelle Lee (The Crucible, Wuthering Heights), Giedeon Mzembe (Brisbane Festival and La Boite's Prize Fighter).

Animal Farm is directed by Michael Futcher (A Beautiful Life, The Drowning Bride, The Wishing Well).
