There is no turning back once the war trumpet has been the sounded. The animals at Manor Farm have declared war on their drunken and irresponsible owner Mr. Jones, and have secured the farm for themselves after successfully driving out all the humans. It all began when Old Major, the old prize boar on Manor Farm, had a dream in which animals live in a utopian world without the tyranny of man. Inspired by Old Major’s rhetoric and an old song Beasts of England”, taught to them by Old Major, the animals revolt against the tyranny of their human masters. Once the animals take over the farm, they expect things to get better for their kind, and emphatically declare all animals to be equal. Does the utopian dream of Old Major live up to the animals’ expectations or are they in for a dystopian awakening as things take on an altogether different turn? Do Snowball and Napoleon manage to bring order to the chaotic situation following the revolution? Now that the humans have been banished from Manor Farm, what new evil lurks round the corner, waiting to possess the innocent farm animals? Animal Farm is a straightforward tale of a remarkable revolution in the animal world. However, on a deeper level it is a political satire of the cruel man-made ideologies of class divisions and the subsequent class struggles involved. A radio version of the novella was broadcast on BBC Radio in January 1947. Animal Farm has also been adapted to film twice, as an animated feature in 1954 and later as a TV live action version in 1999. A theatrical version of Animal Farm was staged in London in 1984, followed by a tour of nine cities in 1985. Guy Masterson’s solo version that premiered at the Traverse Theatre Edinburgh in 1995 has been touring the world since.”
