Performer Guy Masterson poses with his tongue out and hands together in an animal-style pose. He is wearing a blue boiler suit.

This event has now finished.

One of the greatest solo shows of all time, Animal Farm has rarely been so relevant...

George Orwell’s barnyard classic is brought to vivid life with the use of only a bale of hay, bowler hat, a whip, amazing animal sound effects and an extraordinarily bravura physical performance!

All the animals are perfectly conjured and the allegory is perfectly conveyed in a manner to be enjoyed by all ages. As we find oursleves in extraordinary times once again, Orwell’s message of betrayed idealism has rarely been as topical and poignant.

Astonishingly performed, adapted and directed by Olivier Award winner Guy Masterson, director of the Olivier nominated West End hit The Shark Is Broken. This is a performance that will live in the memory for many years.

Delights with its physical grace and artistry. Complex and entirely theatrical; a combination of bravura acting and poetic storytelling which milks new nuance and meaning!
