Solo show of Orwell classic

SEVENTEEN years since its world premiere, Guy Masterson’s magnificent solo performance of George Orwell’s classic satire is heading to Buxton as part of its final UK tour.

Using nothing but a bale of hay, some amazing sound effects and brilliant physical and vocal dexterity, Masterson ignites the famous yarn, bringing a modern sinister relevance to Orwell’s masterwork, leaving an indelible imprint in the consciousness.

Hilariously comic and terribly poignant in turn, Masterson’s breathtaking physical storytelling creates the entire farmyard around the audience during two hours of utterly compelling theatre.

Now officially the most highly-performed solo show in the world, this is a must-see performance for all ages.

If you’ve never seen or read Animal Farm, this is most definitely the show for you.

Animal Farm comes to Buxton Opera House on Wednesday January 16, at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £15, are available from the Box Office on 0845 127 2190 or online at
