Orwell's Animal Farm at Newham City Farm in August
Community Links presents George Orwell's Animal Farm, adapted by James Kenworth, at Newham City Farm, an inner city farm in east London, from 19 to 24 Aug 2014. The play is directed by James Martin Charlton and designed by Ian Teague.
Synopsis: 'Simple, tragic fable, telling what happens when the animals drive out Mr Jones and attempt to run the farm themselves. This adaptation has a contemporary twist, injecting the tale of a revolution that went wrong with a gritty, urban, in-yer-face language.'
Newham City Farm opened in 1977 and is one of London's longest established and largest city farms. It is home to a wide range of animals and rare breeds, including a large Shire Horse, birds, cows, sheep, alpacas, goats, chickens, rabbits, fish, ferrets and a harris hawk.
