The Questors Academy Youth Theatre present Animal Farm. Adapted by Peter Hall from George Orwell

Where: The Questors Theatre (Judi Dench Playhouse), 12 Mattock Lane
Ealing, London W5 5BQ

All animals are equal ...
Hall’s acclaimed adaptation of Orwell’s novella is brought to life by members of the Questors Youth Theatre.

The animals on Manor Farm are oppressed by a cruel and drunken human master.

Inspired by Old Major, they revolt and claim the farm as their own.

They form a collective and share the work and food between them.

The pigs provide much needed leadership, encouraging the animals in their defence of the farm against human enemies.

But power is corrupting and soon the pigs have their noses in the trough.

An allegory for what Orwell (a democratic socialist) regarded as the corruption of the Communist ideal, the story is as relevant in today’s era of alternative facts as it ever was.
