Update on Animal Farm23rd February 2016
Tree Folk Theatre’s performance is said to strike the right balance between looking impressive and grotesque at the same time. Critics are saying it’s a strong production and a great way to enthuse older children.
“Tree Folk’s Animal Farm is about political control as much as it is about any single political regime – it feels highly contemporary without any conscious updating.”
“The cast convey the posture and personality of the farm animals without falling into oinking, neighing parody. The result showcases the subtly of Orwell's humour.”
“Using simple storytelling and puppets of the main animal characters, this production brings Orwell’s landmark book to life.”
