Animal Farm
Rip the rings from out your noses! Tear the saddles from your backs! Theater of the Apes Sub-Adult Division presents a lean, mean take on Animal Farm. George Orwells original fairy story was an allegorical take down of the Soviet Union under Stalin -  a communal ideal that metastasized into a reign of terror under a corrupt and power-mad leader. Sound familiar? All animals are equal

Adapted by Sir Peter Hall from the novel by George Orwell
Music by Richard Peaslee Lyrics by Adrian Mitchell

Directed by Ayun Halliday

Musical Direction by Jeffrey Lodin

Featuring a cast of 9 homeschooled New York City teens:

Kai Ellington

Alioune Fall

Iossy Freud

Quintin Harris

Penn Lodin

Milo Kotis

Felicity McKenna

Isabelle Pflanz

& Thomas Pflanz

Recent productions include Lunchtime by Greg Kotis and Zamboni Godot by Ayun Halliday.  Animal Farm is the inaugural production of the Sub-Adult Division. Human see, human do.
