Press about Animal Farm:
Powerful music and performances culminate in a beautiful and grasping piece of physical theatre ★★★★★ Three Weeks
Effective piece of physical theatre ★★★★★ Counter Culture
A magnificent satirical performance of Orwell’s masterpiece ★★★★ Broadway Baby
Fantastic production ★★★★ The Stage
A sensational theatre adaptation of Orwell’s classic dystopian tale ★★★★ The List
There are some very impressive individual performances, notably from George Kipshidze as a very intimidating Napoleon, Vano Tarkhnishvili as a brilliantly slimy propaganda officer Squealer and Zurab Getsadze as strong, loyal carthorse Boxer.
This very special production is an undoubted Edinburgh highlight, thanks to a powerful adaptation and the commitment of its talented cast. It would be good to see it transfer to London in the autumn. THEATRECAT. Philip Fisher
