Animal Farm: Guy Masterson picture

Tue 15th Jan at 17 years since its eorld premiere, Guy Masterson’s magnificent solo performance of Orwell’s classic satire is on its final UK tour. Using nothing but a bale of hay, some amazing sound effects and brilliant physical and vocal dexterity, Masterson ignites this famous yarn, bringing a modern sinister relevance to Orwell’s masterwork, leaving an indelible imprint in the consciousness. Hilariously comic and terribly poignant in turn, Masterson’s breathtaking physical storytelling creates the entire farmyard around you in 2 hours of utterly compelling theatre. Now officially the most highly performed solo show in the world, this is a must see performance for all ages. If you’ve never seen or read Animal Farm, this is the show for you. Even if you remember it from school… you won’t believe what you see! A brilliant adaptation which delights with its physical grace and artistry. It’s complex and entirely theatrical; a combination of bravura acting and poetic storytelling which milks new nuance and meaning! The Scotsman
