Animal Farm by The Bloomshed
Why do we to suffer?
There is only one answer: MAN.
We are being robbed of everything.
One of the most brutal stories ever told. Written by one of the most incisive and subversive writers of the twentieth century.
Adapted by The Bloomshed, George Orwell’s fierce critique of power is funnelled through a contemporary context that sees political oppression, extremism, misinformation and food production erupt into an all-out assault on our contemporary political landscape. Animal Farm is a high-octane mess of punk-protest, political allegory and epic theatre with a rhythm beaten out on abandoned grain silos.
If you want to make an omelette, you’ve got to crack some eggs.
“The Bloomshed have established themselves firmly as experts in reanimating older texts, bastardising classic texts to create cutting, political contemporary theatre.”
