Esplanade Presents Vilangkuppannai (Animal Farm)

Event details

17 Jun - 19 Jun
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

This is the story of how a revolution goes wrong. How the genuine disaffection of those in desperate need of change becomes weaponised and putrefied by a ruthless political class.

From the brutal Stalinist regime that prompted Orwell to write this story in 1945, to the empty promises of today’s demagogues, Animal Farm is a chilling reminder of how absolute power can be seized and retained.

Agam Theatre Lab is thrilled to be presenting the world premiere of this dramatic adaptation by Cultural Medallion recipient P Krishnan. Originally adapted in 1971 in its entirety, only a fraction of the play was aired on the radio for two hours in May 1971. 50 years on, this play will be staged as a full-length production for the first time ever. Assembled by an award-winning creative team, Animal Farm is a dynamic, daring and contemporary take on a timeless story.
