A Noise Within presents George Orwell’s savage satire, Animal Farm,directed byANW Co-artistic Director Julia Rodriguez-Elliott. The acclaimed stage adaptation by the National Theatre’s Sir Peter Hall, which boasts music by Richard Peaslee and lyrics by Adrian Mitchell, opens A Noise Within’s 2022-23 season on Sept. 3. Performances continue through Oct. 2.

At once funny and frightening, delightful and devastating, Animal Farm charts the fall of idealism and the rise of tyranny after the animals of Manor Farm rise up against their oppressive human owner in a struggle for rights and equality. First published in 1945, Animal Farm was written in reaction to Stalin’s rise to power following the Russian Revolution. But his allegory has continued to resonate.
