About This Show

Bailiwick Repertory presented the American Premiere of Sir Peter Hall’s version of George Orwell’s classic Animal Farm in 1987, and it became Bailiwick’s first hit and commercial transfer. When Orwell penned this classic allegory in 1945, his portrait of Mr. Jones’ humble farm that becomes paradise when the animals overthrow the humans and establish the commandment “All animals are created equal” struck a vibrant chord in a world sick of war.
