Waterford Youth Arts in association Garter Lane Arts Centre presents George Orwell’s Animal Farm adapted by Peter Hall, with lyrics by Adrian Mitchell and music by Richard Peaslee.

Directed by Rhiann Jeffrey, Waterford Youth Arts tackles one of Orwell’s best know works, Animal Farm.

Orwell penned the tale as a dystopian text, it portrays a world where the characters seek to have a perfect or utopian society. But will the plight of the animals of Manor Farm result in a world that is worse than the world they changed?

Set design is by Dermot Quinn. Costume designer Carla Barrow brings an aesthetic that references punk; a time synonymous with powerful, rebellious creative expression in fashion, music and art.

Animal Farm is Waterford Youth Arts’ flagship production, co-produced in association with Garter Lane Arts Centre.

Tickets: €17/€15
Preview nights Thursday 23rd and 30th of August at €10
