George Orwell’s Political Satire on authoritarian regimes is more relevant than ever.

As Jesus said: “The more equal will always be with you.”
OK, he didn’t say that but he was thinking it pretty hard.

The production, in association with Saumarez, will be staged in the Jackson Centre Barn.
Yes it can be cold in the barn but there is adequate gas heating due to Comrade Napoleon’s Fracking Deal.
Rehearsal period will be about 8 weeks.
The runtime is approx 90 minutes
Performance dates: August 10th to the 26th
We require a minimum of 15 actors/puppeteers.
The major characters will be costumed while the large cast of less equal animals will be cut out puppets with the puppeteers dressed in black and speaking the dialogue.
Some doubling is required so there will be plenty to do for everyone.
There is a minimum age limit of 12 or nearly 12 years.
For younger actors there will be plenty of parts in Jack and the Beanstalk in Sept/Oct
We need talented artists to create the puppets and costumes, technicians and FOH staff.
Please indicate your interest on the website or at auditions.
This will be intimate theatre with an audience limit of 60.
