Join New Rep's CLASSIC REPERTORY COMPANY for a special one-night-only performance at the Mosesian Center for the Arts!
The animals of Mr. Jones’ farm believe they could build themselves a utopia, if only they could get rid of the humans in charge. When their dreams become reality, life isn’t as easy as they thought, as old problems take a new form. Originally written as a critique of Stalinism, George Orwell’s acclaimed 1945 novel finds new life in this contemporary stage adaptation. Exploring themes of power, politics, and propaganda, this frightening fairytale feels ripped from the headlines.
