Event description

Description

Flock Theatre is mounting their long-awaited reader’s theatre production of the George Orwell classic Animal Farm at the Mitchell College Red Barn.

Orwell’s famous allegorical novel transposed into script reflects the events that created the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union, set against the backdrop of the Manor Farm, an aesthetic perfectly imagined within Mitchell’s Red Barn venue. In Animal Farm, two young pigs named Napoleon and Snowball mount a rebellion against the farmers when their leader, Old Major, passes away. The play follows Napoleon as he slowly and nefariously restructures the farm, wages war, and controls his subordinates through propaganda and manipulation.

Flock’s production of Animal Farm features an array of expertly designed and crafted animal masks created by Heather Asch, a 4-time Emmy award-winning puppeteer, whose credits include The Jim Henson Company, Sesame Workshop, and Nickelodeon.
