A scintillating take on one of the greatest stories

Riverside is presenting a strictly limited season of State Theatre Company South Australia production of Animal Farm this May. Tickets are now on sale for this blistering one-man version of George Orwell's political classic.

Written in the 1940s as a response to the rise of authoritarian governments around the world, Animal Farm is a searing and timeless examination of extremist rule.

"All animals are equal but some are more equal than others."

Animal Farm will see Dale March (Australian Tour of the National Theatre's Warhorse) inhabit upwards of 20 characters, from the revolutionary pigs to the stoic draft horse and the tyrannical Mr Jones.


Revolution is coming to Manor Farm. Under the guidance of some rebellious pigs, a group of farm animals unite to drive out their cruel human oppressors and build utopia.

But the swine are not as united as they appear and their division gives rise to a terrifying new system of power and repression. Written in the 1940s as a response to the rise of authoritarian governments around the world, Animal Farm is a searing examination of extremist rule.


"The most thought-provoking piece of literature I have ever read." The Guardian
