Animal Farm

On “Manor Farm” revolution is in the air.

See what happens when the animals throw out Farmer Jones
and run the farm for themselves, when horses, cows, pigs,
sheep and hens take control of their own lives and declare war
on humanity.

With movement, music (and some jokes!) Paper Zoo present
an energetic performance of this timeless tale of the abuse of
power – as relevant in today’s world of sweat-shops, fiddled
elections and imprisonment without trial as it was on the day it
was written.

The names of the oppressors have changed but the story
remains the same.
