Animal Farm is among the most famous political novels of all time and it remains a timeless and devastating allegory of idealism betrayed by the desire for personal power. When the animals of Manor Farm drive out their abusive farmer, they take over running the farm for themselves. Their experiment in collective leadership succeeds - until the pigs step into the vacuum of power created by the farmer's expulsion, and betray the ideals of freedom and equality for all animals.

Animal Farm begins performances January 9 and runs through February 11 in the Quadracci Powerhouse. Opening night is set for Friday, January 12 at 8 pm. Tickets to this thought-provoking play are now on sale and can be purchased online at www.MilwaukeeRep.com, by phone at 414-224-9490 or in person at the Ticket Office (108 E. Wells Street).
